Placental (eutherian) mammals are currently classified into four superordinal clades (Afrotheria, Xenarthra, Laurasiatheria and Supraprimates) of which one, the Afrotheria (a unique lineage of African origin), is generally considered to be basal. Therefore, Afrotheria provide a pivotal evolutionary link for studying fundamental differences between the sex chromosomes of human/mouse (both representatives of Supraprimates and the index species for studies of sex chromosomes) and those of the...[Show more]
