Meiotic drive shapes rates of karyotype evolution in mammalsBlackmon, H., J. Justison, I. Mayrose and E. E. Goldberg, Evolution, 73:511-523. 2019.
Chromosome number is perhaps the most basic characteristic of a genome, yet generalizations that can explain the evolution of this trait across large clades have remained elusive. Using karyotype data from over 1000 mammals, we developed and applied a phylogenetic model of ...
