    Jansen and Nap (Trends Genet 17(7):388-391, 2001) and Jansen (Nat Rev Genet 4:145-151, 2003) first proposed the concept of genetical genomics, or genome-wide genetic analysis of gene expression data, which is also called transcriptome mapping. In this approach, microarrays are used for measuring...

    Hybrid dysfunction, a common feature of reproductive barriers between species, is often caused by negative epistasis between loci (“Dobzhansky-Muller incompatibilities”). The nature and complexity of hybrid incompatibilities remain poorly understood because identifying interacting...

    Expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL) studies have generated large amounts of data in different organisms. The analyses of these data have led to many novel findings and biological insights on expression regulations. However, the role of epistasis in the joint regulation of multiple genes...
