Hey, you should register for The @GeneticsGSA Allied Genetics Conference #TAGC2020 April 22-25. It's virtual and free: Plus you can hear about how dense encoding of developmental regulatory information in a #Drosophila enhancer may constrain #evolvability

#DarwinDay Current debates over evolutionary theorizing are all in agreement with Darwin's theoretical breakthroughs. Our 2019 #EvoEvolving conference highlights the evolution of evobio itself while examining the evolution of evo processes ( #evolvability).

Toxicity of a #Heliconius butterfly population may change up to 10% per y because of high evolutionary potential in this trait, demonstrated by our study highlighting the implications of chemical defense evolution for aposematic and mimetic species.

Populations under strong selection evolve greater robustness to mutations, facilitating fitness valley bypasses with dual-role mutations that enhance both robustness & fitness.

What are the effects of selection on #evolvability? Does robustness lead to reservoirs of neutral genetic mutations that prepare an organism to adapt to new environments?
