Genes associated with ant social behavior show distinct transcriptional and evolutionary patterns

Mikheyev, Alexander S.; Linksvayer, Timothy A.


Studies of the genetic basis and evolution of complex social behavior emphasize either conserved or novel genes. To begin to reconcile these perspectives, we studied how the evolutionary conservation of genes associated with social behavior depends on regulatory context, and whether genes associated with social behavior exist in distinct regulatory and evolutionary contexts. We identified modules of co-expressed genes associated with age-based division of labor between nurses and foragers in...[Show more]
