Experimental evolution of a novel sexually antagonistic allele

PLoS Genetics

Sep 8, 2012

Rebecca DeanS Wigby

Abstract

Evolutionary conflict permeates biological systems. In sexually reproducing organisms, sex-specific optima mean that the same allele can have sexually antagonistic expression, i.e. beneficial in one sex and detrimental in the other, a phenomenon known as intralocus sexual conflict.
