An eruption of Islands

Our recent paper looking at the genomic basis of parallel adaptation [Soria-Carrasco et al. 2014] was featured in an opinion piece by Elizabeth Pennisi entitled “Disputed Islands”. In her article Penski explores the “genomic island” metaphor, it’s evolution in evolutionary biology, and the processes that can generate those contentious peaks of divergence frequently observed within genomes.

[The piece includes two pictures of Timema (one I took myself, the other a great shot by Mo Muschick)]
