Genetic models of homosexuality: generating testable predictions

Proceedings. Biological Sciences

Oct 4, 2006

Sergey Gavrilets, William R Rice

Abstract

Homosexuality is a common occurrence in humans and other species, yet its genetic and evolutionary basis is poorly understood. Here, we formulate and study a series of simple mathematical models for the purpose of predicting empirical patterns that can be used to determine the form of s...read more
