|Outline of Final Research Achievements
This study focused on dopamine biosynthesis pathway genes, which has a pleiotropic effect on both body pigmentation and behavior, as genes potentially involved in reproductive isolation triggered by environmental adaptation. We found unexpectedly complex cis-regulatory polymorphisms in these genes and a genetic variant that is likely to change both pigmentation and behavior.
From a wider viewpoint of the “Correlative gene systems”, another contribution of this study was to elucidate various associations between cis/trans-regulatory variations and genomic factors by conducting a novel type of genome-wide transcriptome analysis.
