Meiotic drive promotes chromosome fusions in butterflies - new paper by Boman et al.

2024-02-08

Jesper just submitted a new manuscript to Chromosome Research. The paper describes how meiotic drive promotes chromosome fusions in heterokaryomorphic butterflies and has implications for understanding the interplay between chromosome rearrangements and the build-up of reproductive barriers. Co-authors are Roger Vila and Christer Wiklund. The paper can be found as a preprint on biorxiv: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2024.02.02.578558v1
