Genetic Basis for Phenotypes

Three Requirements for Natural Selection

Phenotypic Variation

Fitness Differential based on Phenotypes

slide4

Mechanisms of Reproductive Isolation

Pre-Zygotic – prevent fertilization from ever occurring

1. Temporal – different breeding seasons (frogs)

2. Habitat – different areas (meadows vs. stream side)

3. Behavioral – different courtship (bowerbirds)

4. Mechanical – different reproductive structures (flowers)

5. Gametic – different sperm-egg binding sites

slide7

Mechanisms of Reproductive Isolation

Post-Zygotic – prevent functioning adulthood

1. Hybrid Inviability – arrested development

2. Hybrid Sterility – adult not able to reproduce

3. Hybrid Breakdown – F2 sterility

slide13

How to get from molecular data to a tree

  • Align sequences for all species to compare & identify differences between species

2. Generate a distance matrix

3. Choose the two species with the least differences and group them

4. Re-draw your distance matrix with those species clustered as one group

5. Continue process of grouping until all accounted for

6. Draw tree

Calculating Rates of Molecular Evolution

# of nucleotide changes/site/year

# of nucleotide differences in DNA region of interest counted for species of interest

growth hormone gene between rats and mice = 1800 differences

divide by total number of nucleotides in DNA region to get #changes/site

if there are 15000 nucleotides in GH gene: 1800/15000 = 0.12

divide by number of years since species had a common ancestor (identified from fossil record)

0.12/15,000,000 = 8 x 10-9 changes/site/year

*more changes occur than we can presently see (e.g., forward & reverse mutations; additions + deletions) – models used to predict actual number of changes

*once you get a few points for the graph, if the rate is stable you can predict evolutionary divergence times by knowing the rate, how many differences, and how big the gene is
