New Research Characterizes the Evolution of Genetic Pathway for Reproductive Fitness in Flowering Plants
Previously, this pathway was thought to be present only in grasses.
in angiosperms,” in the journal Nature Communications. “We’ve been studying this pathway extensively, , and characterizing these in our study has given us insights into how sRNA and reproductive biology has diverged, . But their paper in Nature Communications upends this view, demonstrating that the pathway emerged
Study Sheds Light on the Genetic Origins of the Two Sexes
Research captures the earliest stages of evolution where male and female gametes first evolved
Study Sheds Light on the Genetic Origins of the Two Sexes, ST. LOUIS, MO, March 8, 2018 – A new study published in the journal Communications Biology has shed light on the earliest stages in the evolution of male-female differentiation and sex chromosomes—and found the genetic origins of the two sexes to be unexpectedly modest.
