2012 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
David Houle mostly deals with Genetics, Evolutionary biology, Selection, Natural selection and Mutation. All of his Genetics and Genetic variation, Mutation rate, Genome and Mutation–selection balance investigations are sub-components of the entire Genetics study. His work focuses on many connections between Genetic variation and other disciplines, such as Genetic variability, that overlap with his field of interest in Population genetics and Covariance.
His research ties Genic capture and Evolutionary biology together. In his works, David Houle performs multidisciplinary study on Selection and Variance. The study incorporates disciplines such as Sexual selection, Mate choice, Mating and Pair bond in addition to Natural selection.
His primary areas of study are Genetics, Evolutionary biology, Drosophila melanogaster, Selection and Genetic variation. The concepts of his Genetics study are interwoven with issues in Natural selection and Fluctuating asymmetry. His Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Drosophila and Sexual dimorphism.
The various areas that he examines in his Drosophila melanogaster study include Mutation, X chromosome, Gene expression and Inbred strain. His study in Selection is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Quantitative genetics, Evolvability, Adaptation and Biological evolution. David Houle works mostly in the field of Genetic variation, limiting it down to topics relating to Genetic variability and, in certain cases, Population genetics, as a part of the same area of interest.
His primary areas of study are Evolutionary biology, Genetics, Wing, Drosophila melanogaster and Sexual dimorphism. His Evolutionary biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Adaptation, Selection, Mutation and Allometry. His research on Selection focuses in particular on Natural selection.
His Natural selection research focuses on Pleiotropy and how it relates to Biological evolution. David Houle focuses mostly in the field of Drosophila melanogaster, narrowing it down to matters related to Sexual conflict and, in some cases, Indirect selection. His Sexual dimorphism research incorporates themes from Phenotype and Gene expression.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Wing, Evolutionary biology, Genetics, Drosophila melanogaster and Allometry. David Houle conducted interdisciplinary study in his works that combined Evolutionary biology and Variation. His studies in Mutation rate, Genetic variation, Negative selection and INDEL Mutation are all subfields of Genetics research.
His Genetic variation study incorporates themes from Melanogaster, Rate of evolution, Selection, Mutation and Constraint. His Allometry research includes themes of Linkage disequilibrium, Power law and Evolutionary stability. His research in Natural selection intersects with topics in Microevolution and Body size.
