Evolutionary signals of selection on cognition from the great tit genome and methylome [Nature communications]

Subject terms : biological sciences, genetics

For over 50 years, the great tit (Parus major) has been a model species for research in evolutionary, ecological and behavioural research ; in particular, learning and cognition have been intensively studied. Here, to provide further insight into the molecular mechanisms behind these important traits, we de novo assemble a great tit reference genome and whole-genome re-sequence another 29 individuals from across Europe.(...)
