Lay Summary (Englisch)

Lay summary

Populations of mixed ancestry (exhibiting socalled “genetic admixture”) have been used successfully in medicine for mapping genes of relevance for human health (for example in African Americans). Admixture between divergent populations also holds great promise for genomic studies of key evolutionary processes in wild species of animals and plants, such as adaptation, reproductive isolation and speciation. Important laboratory and analytical tools are now in place to map functionally important genes in ecologically important species using natural crosses found in mixed-ancestry populations. Here, we propose to use these newly developed tools to address topics of great current interest in ecological & evolutionary genomics.
