Mimicry supergene article featured in Nature.

Butterflies feeding on lantana

Nature published an article detailing the supergene that controls the Müllerian mimicry of Heliconius numata represented through the variety of wing patterns. The project was led by our affiliate Mathieu Joron, and contains contributions from our very own Chris Jiggins. Congratulations to everyone who participated in this study!

The original article can be found here, and below is a video short featured on Nature’s website explaining the study.
