Wild-to-domesticated complexes are excellent experimental systems to investigate certain evolutionary issues. There is a known time frame extending some 10,000 years. Both the progenitors and their descendants are known. This allows the integration of evolutionary and developmental genetics and a closer look at those differences at the molecular level that are responsible for the phenotypic differences between wild and domesticated types.
