Flying fish, woooosh

Flyingish have evolved elongated pectoral fins for gliding, which we have recapitulatad in zebrafish mutants. Though they don't fly (yet).

Lake Kronotskoe Charr

Salmonid fishes such as Artic Charr have undergone repeated diversifications in isolated lakes of the northern hemisphere. In such a repeated evolutionary experiment, such parallel radiations empowers comparative genomic analyses to refine the genetic signatures of the morphological and physiological changes that occur. One radiation of Arctic charr occurred in Lake Kronotskoe, Russia, leading to seven distinct, true breeding morphs. We have performed genome wide analysis of variation in these lineages and have identified specific changes in developmental regulation that highlight common principles of salmonid developmental and evolutionary plasticity.
