EvoluKon of Gene Expression: Cis vs. trans -studies to date suggest that more changes between species are cis-regulatory -consistent with idea that pleiotropy constrains structural evolution

Evolutionary processes and large-scale evolution •Natural selection, genetic drift, mutation, migration sources of MICROEVOLUTION, but can these processes explain taxonomic diversification (MACROEVOLUTION)? • left nagging doubts for early researchers studying evolution vs.
Background image of page 6
Nagging Doubts by Early Researchers 1) How and why do organisms diverge and diversify? 2) How can we explain patterns of variation across species? 3) Can the evolutionary processes of mutation, selection, drift explain how we got millions of diverse species on earth?
