The EDA receptor (EDAR) is a candidate gene for lateral plate number variation in stickleback fish

Telma G. Laurentino, Nicolas Boileau, Fabrizia Ronco & Daniel Berner
Variation in lateral plating in stickleback fish represents a classical example of rapid and parallel adaptation in morphology. The underlying genetic architecture involves polymorphism at the ectodysplasin-A (EDA) gene. However, lateral plate number is influenced by additional loci that remain poorly characterized. Here we search for such loci by performing genome-wide differentiation mapping based on pooled whole-genome sequence data from a European stickleback population variable in the extent of lateral plating, while tightly controlling for...
