Ancient and modern genomes reveal microsatellites maintain a dynamic equilibrium through deep time

Microsatellites are widely used in population genetics, but their evolutionary dynamics remain poorly understood. It is unclear whether microsatellite loci drift in length over time. We identify more than 27 million microsatellites using a novel and unique dataset of modern and ancient Adelie penguin genomes along with data from 63... Show more
