Title: Evolution of the vomeronasal system viewed through system-specific genes.
Institution: University of Michigan
Completed: April 2008
Here I describe building a tree that shows the relationships between vomeronasal (smelling) receptors (the ribbons) in three mammals (mouse - Susie, dog - Natasha, and cow - Crystal). Each species is a different color and each gene is a different branch. Because the vomeronasal receptors evolve in a lineage-specific manner, the receptors from a species cluster mainly with other receptors from that same species.
