Sex from W to Z - evolution of vertebrate sex chromosomes and sex determining genes

Graves, Jennifer; Shetty, Swathi


Sex determination in major vertebrate groups appears to be very variable, including systems of male heterogamety, female heterogamety and a variety of genetic and environmental sex determining systems. Yet comparative studies of sex chromosomes and sex determining genes now suggest that these differences are more apparent than real. The sex chromosomes of even widely divergent groups now appear to have changed very little over the last 300+ million years, and even independently derived sex...[Show more]
