Abstract Sex determination mechanisms are bewilderingly diverse. A cascade of genes with hierarchical regulation characterizes sex determination pathways in insects. How such pathways evolve is poorly understood, partly due to a lack of comparative data. Houseflies are well known for their polymorphic sex d .. [more]
