TitleFitness Consequences of Polymorphic Inversions in the Zebra Finch Genome
Study TypeOther
Abstract Background: Inversion polymorphisms constitute an evolutionary puzzle: they should increase embryo mortality in heterokaryotypic individuals, but still they are widespread in some taxa. Some insect species have evolved mechanisms to reduce the cost of embryo mortality, but humans have not. In birds, .. [more]
