Is Speciation Accompanied by Rapid Evolution? Insights from Comparing Reproductive and Nonreproductive Transcriptomes in Drosophila
Distribution of ratio of divergence between D. melanogaster-D. simulans versus D. yakuba-D. erecta. (a) Distribution of molecular-divergence log2 () to divergence-time ratio log2 (), between D. melanogaster-D. simulans and D. yakuba-D. erecta. Colored circles represent ratios, and gray circles represent ratios. The upper limit of the clockwise category is given by the log2 ratio of divergence times (6.5/8.1) and the lower limit by the log2 ratio 4.3/12.7. (b) Relationship of between D. melanogaster-D. simulans and D. yakuba-D. erecta. The regression lines for each rate categories are also plotted. (c) Relationship of between D. melanogaster-D. simulans versus D. yakuba-D. erecta; color codes: red: accelerated, black: clock-like, green: slow-rate categories, and grey: ratios.
