Is there evidence of selection in the dopamine receptor D4 gene in Australian invasive starling populations?

Rollins, L.A.; Whitehead, Michael; Woolnough, Andrew P.; Sinclair, Ron; Sherwin, William


Although population genetic theory is largely based on the premise that loci under study are selectively neutral, it has been acknowledged that the study of DNA sequence data under the influence of selection can be useful. In some circumstances, these loci show increased population differentiation and gene diversity. Highly polymorphic loci may be especially useful when studying populations having low levels of diversity overall, such as is often the case with threatened or newly established...[Show more]
