Hot, hot, hot: Evolution 2016 in Austin, Texas

Published: June 21, 2016

We brought lots of exciting new findings to share at Evolution, spanning macroevolution to network analysis and evolutionary genetics.  Dan shared his work showing that white flowers in Iochroma loxense have evolved due to a novel repressor which results in a dominant loss of pigmentation phenotype.  Julienne spoke about her macroevolutionary modeling studies suggesting the tippiness of red flower is due to higher extinction. Andrea discussed her new work on the regulatory evolution of anthocyanins across angiosperms. Finally, Rob shared preliminary data from the community phylogenetic project with NEON.  Congrats to all for a great showing!
