Abstract Detail



A Colloquium Honoring Leslie D. Gottlieb

Liston, Aaron [1].

Integrated phylogenetic and population genetic analyses with 257 nuclear loci in Fragaria.

Leslie Gottlieb had a deep interest in dissecting the process of plant speciation. Several of his landmark studies occurred at the interface of population genetics and phylogenetics. The enzyme electrophoresis method (characterization of protein polymorphisms via electrophoretic mobility) that he pioneered was well-suited for these questions. Targeted enrichment and next generation sequencing of hundreds of nuclear loci provides a renewed opportunity to examine population and species level phenomena with a single data source. This approach has been utilized in the genus Fragaria to evaluate potential modes of speciation and to identify diploid progenitors of allopolyploid species.
