Selfish genes and sexual selection: the impact of genomic parasites on host reproductionN. Wedell, Journal of Zoology, 311:1-12. 2020.
Selfish genetic elements (SGEs) such as replicating mobile elements, segregation distorters and maternally inherited endosymbionts, bias their transmission success relative to the rest of the genome to increase in representation in subsequent generations. As such, they generate ...
