I think it's a little simpler than what you describe- phenotypic plasticity is the abstract property of phenotypes differing with respect to environment, whereas a reaction norm is a particular environmental response. So you might make an argument like this: "Daphnia show extensive phenotypic plasticity in their morphology. For example, see the attached ...

Phenotypic plasticity, as you define in your question, is an ability or a property of the organism (a given genotype) to manifest different phenotypes in different environments (Pigliucci et al., 2006). Reaction norm is an analysis of the pattern of phenotypes exhibited in different environments. In other words it is an analysis of the phenotypic plasticity....

They are different. Genomics is the general science of sequencing whole genomes (or sometimes, the majority of the genome, or all the protein-coding genes, as in transcriptomes). Population genetics uses molecular data (usually DNA sequences, but not always) to make deductions about the characteristics of a population, or the relationships among biological ...

This can occur if the Ab genotype is lethal, i.e. you won't observe individuals with a Ab genotype. Allele lethality is a common mechanisms that can explain non-mendelian inheritance of a trait. For the question of which LD metric to use, this is tricky. Under the assumption that allele lethality is indeed at play, you observed perfect haplotypes, so D'=1 ...

As I understand it from skimming the Cell paper and that by Bobay and Ochman, 2018, which it cites, the concern is the validity of the established method of defining viral species. Quoting from this latter paper: Members of a biological species are defined by their ability to exchange genetic material… The problem would appear to be that ssDNA and RNA ...

I don't think this is an answer, but I have been told to write it as an answer by a mod: it means " ...the standard model of uncontrolled, widespread, pervasive mosaicism..." Mosaicism mechanisms are probably for another topic, Wiki states that: Genetic mosaicism can result from many different mechanisms including endoreplication, anaphase lag, and ...
