In this episode, Lisandro Milocco (PhD candidate, advised by Dr. Isaac Salazar-Ciudad) shares insights from his new paper, Milocco and Salazar-Ciudad 2022: ‘Evolution of the G matrix under nonlinear genotype-phenotype maps.’ We discuss how Lisandro likes to think about genotype-phenotype maps, how genes control complex developmental processes such as the generation of mammalian teeth, and how the interaction of genes and the developmental processes they control change our expectations for how quantitative phenotypes evolve. Listen to our conversation and then read Lisandro’s full paper here!
