    • Gene flow and the genealogical history of Heliconius heurippa 

      Salazar, Camilo; Jiggins, Christopher David; Taylor, Jesse E; Kronforst, Marcus R; Linares, Mauricio (2008-05-02)
      Abstract Background The neotropical butterfly Heliconius heurippa has a hybrid colour pattern, which also contributes to reproductive isolation, making it a likely example of hybrid speciation. Here we used phylogenetic ...
    • Macroevolutionary shifts of WntA function potentiate butterfly wing-pattern diversity. 

      Mazo-Vargas, Anyi; Concha, Carolina; Livraghi, Luca; Massardo, Darli; Wallbank, Richard WR; Zhang, Linlin; Papador, Joseph D et al. (2017-10)
      Butterfly wing patterns provide a rich comparative framework to study how morphological complexity develops and evolves. Here we used CRISPR/Cas9 somatic mutagenesis to test a patterning role for WntA, a signaling ligand ...
