• Controlling for P-value inflation in allele frequency change in experimental evolution and artificial selection experiments 

      Kemppainen, Petri; Rønning, Bernt; Kvalnes, Thomas; Hagen, Ingerid Julie; Ringsby, Thor Harald; Billing, Anna Maria; Pärn, Henrik; Lien, Sigbjørn; Husby, Arild; Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Jensen, Henrik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Experimental evolution studies can be used to explore genomic response to artificial and natural selection. In such studies, loci that display larger allele frequency change than expected by genetic drift alone are assumed ...
    • Inferences of genetic architecture of bill morphology in house sparrow using a high-density SNP array point to a polygenic basis 

      Lundregan, Sarah; Hagen, Ingerid Julie; Gohli, Jostein; Niskanen, Alina Katariina; Kemppainen, Petri; Ringsby, Thor Harald; Kvalnes, Thomas; Pärn, Henrik; Rønning, Bernt; Holand, Håkon; Ranke, Peter Sjolte; Båtnes, Anna Solvang; Selvik, Linn-Karina M.; Lien, Sigbjørn; Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Husby, Arild; Jensen, Henrik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Understanding the genetic architecture of quantitative traits can provide insights into the mechanisms driving phenotypic evolution. Bill morphology is an ecologically important and phenotypically variable trait, which is ...
    • Insights into the genetic architecture of morphological and sexually selected traits in two passerine bird species 

      Silva, Catarina; McFarlane, S. Eryn; Hagen, Ingerid Julie; Rönnegård, Lars; Billing, Anna; Kvalnes, Thomas; Kemppainen, Petri; Rønning, Bernt; Ringsby, Thor Harald; Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Qvarnström, Anna; Ellegren, Hans; Jensen, Henrik; Husby, Arild (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Knowledge about the underlying genetic architecture of phenotypic traits is needed to understand and predict their evolutionary dynamics. The number of causal loci underlying most phenotypic traits, the magnitude of their ...
