Sex-limited mutations and the evolution of sexual dimorphism

Evolution; International Journal of Organic Evolution

Aug 11, 2000

T Rhen

PMID: 10937181

Abstract

Although the developmental and genetic mechanisms underlying sex differences are being elucidated in great detail in a number of species, there remains a breach between proximate and evolutionary studies of sexual dimorphism. More precisely, the evolution of sex-limited gene expression ...read more

Gonadogenesis, the process of forming an ovary or a testis from a bipotential gonad, is critical to the development of sexually reproducing adults

Microbial ecology, genetics and evolution

Microbes are microscopic organisms which may exist in a unicellular or colony form. Here is the latest research on their genetic makeup, their relationship with one another and the environment, and their evolution.
