Origin and evolution of parthenogenetic genomes in lizards: Current state and future directions

Fujita, Matthew; Moritz, Craig

Description

The atypical characteristics of parthenogenetic lizards offer a rare glimpse into the evolution of asexual vertebrate genomes, addressing the genetic consequences of 2 major hypotheses regarding the absence of sex: reduced potential for adaptation and the accumulation of deleterious mutations. As a consequence of their hybrid origin, parthenogenetic lizards exhibit admixed genomes that offer opportunities to study functional genomics and the disruption of coevolved gene complexes in a...[Show more]
