Evolution of gene expression plays a major role in generating phenotypic diversity and has been studied extensively in recent years. I will present a comprehensive comparative analysis of gene regulation between yeast species and the emerging evolutionary insights. Importantly, apart from understanding the evolutionary process, these analyses reveal the dynamics of gene expression and thereby elucidate basic mechanisms and principles of gene regulation. I will highlight a hybrid-based approach that is instrumental in these analyses, and describe the coupling that we recently identified with this approach between transcription and mRNA degradation.
