Planarian Genome and Genetics (2016)
We established robust procedures to have the sexual planarians produce hatchlings whenever we need them and established a 10-generation inbreeding pedigree, from which we uncovered a non-Mendelian phenomenon.
Planarian Genome and Genetics (2022)
With single chromosome sequencing, we established a chromosome-scale genome assembly, from which we found the non-Mendelian inherited planarian genome is chromosome 1. Chromosome 1 has multiple features of an emerging sex chromosome. As sexual planarians are simultaneous hermaphrodites, we termed this chromosome a sex-primed autosome.
Gecko Genetic and Phenotypic diversity (2021)
The skin cancer in Lemon Frost geckos spontaneously metastasize to the liver. With whole genome sequencing and RAD sequencing, we mapped the genetic loci that caused the Lemon Frost phenotype to a tumor suppressor, SPINT1.
