Methods for selecting fixed-effect models for heterogeneous codon evolution, with comments on their application to gene and genome data
Background: Models of codon evolution have proven useful for investigating the strength and direction of natural selection. In some cases, a priori biological knowledge has been used successfully to model heterogeneous ...

Non-linear genetic isolation by distance: implications for dispersal estimation in anadromous and marine fish populations
Indirect genetic approaches such as those based on the association between genetic and geographic distance (isolation by distance, IBD) may provide one of the best means of estimating dispersal in marine systems. We ...
Phylogenomic analysis of natural selection pressure in Streptococcus genomes
Background: In comparative analyses of bacterial pathogens, it has been common practice to discriminate between two types of genes: (i) those shared by pathogens and their non-pathogenic relatives (core genes), and (ii) ...
Behaviour of sea urchin Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis grazing fronts: food-mediated aggregation and density-dependent facilitation
The occurrence of destructive grazing fronts is a common phenomenon in sea urchins, but mechanisms governing front formation and dynamics remain poorly understood. We experimentally examined the effect of kelp biomass ...
