Gene expression remodelling and immune response during adaptive divergence in an African cichlid fish

Jelena Rajkov, Athimed El Taher, Astrid Böhne, Walter Salzburger & Bernd Egger
Variation in gene expression contributes to ecological speciation by facilitating population persistence in novel environments. Likewise, immune response can be a relevant factor in speciation driven by adaptation to different environments. Previous studies examining gene expression differences between recently diverged ecotypes often relied on only one pair of populations, targeted the expression of only a subset of genes, or used wild caught-individuals. Here, we investigated the contribution of habitat-specific parasites and symbionts and the underlying...
