I had never really thought of domestication in this way before, but Trut’s article made me realize that domestication is relation to gene/behavior research. I found it very interesting that Belyaev used selective forces to select for a certain behavior and actually changed the genome of the individual. This change would also explain the variation observed in other aspects of the animal and is connected to the similarities seen between all of the different species of domesticated animals.
