PLoS Comput. As it is biologically implausible that both XY and ZW sex-determination systems simultaneously exist on the same chromosome, we hypothesized that the ZW signal actually resulted from markers that were either X-limited resulting in male hemizygosity or had an allele specific to the paternal X chromosome.
Abstract The canonical model of sex-chromosome evolution predicts that, as recombination is suppressed along sex chromosomes, gametologs will progressively differentiate, eventually becoming heteromorphic.
Approach three screens for sex-limited RADtags that are specific to the Y chromosome. However, to our knowledge, no statistical support has yet been provided to support this claim, likely due to the low number of species available to test it. Thus, it was also necessary to calculate the expected false-positive mapping rate, per dataset and per R.
Comparative sex chromosome genomics in snakes: differentiation, evolutionary strata, and lack of global dosage compensation. X-linked recessive disorders are also caused by mutations in genes on the X chromosome.
This produces a characteristic ratio of pigmented to unpigmented plants. That is, both loci must have at least one dominant allele to produce the phenotype. Furthermore, an individual who carries two copies of the blue color allele is said to be homozygous for the blue eye color. But, before we get into that, there are a few other things that should be addressed, such as genotype and alleles.
Abstract Sex chromosomes are classically predicted to stop recombining in the heterogametic sex, thereby enforcing linkage between sex-determining SD and sex-antagonistic SA genes. Of the four species that were present in both our study and those from the literature, we were only able to identify the system of heterogamety in two species R.

This family is thought to have a very high rate of sex-chromosome turnover, and anecdotal evidence points to some chromosomes being more likely to be recruited for sex determination than others 14 , making it an ideal system in which to study these questions.
