Insights into the evolution of Darwin's finches from comparative analysis of the Geospiza magnirostris genome sequence.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: A classical example of repeated speciation coupled with ecological diversification is the evolution of 14 closely related species of Darwin's (Galápagos) finches (Thraupidae, Passeriformes). Their adaptive radiation in the Galápagos archipelago took place in the last 2-3 million years and some of the molecular mechanisms that led to their diversification are now being elucidated. Here we report evolutionary analyses of genome of the large ground finch, Geospiza magnirostris. RESUL...
