A test for meiotic drive in hybrids between Australian and Timor zebra finchesU. Knief, W. Forstmeier, Y. Pei, J. Wolf and B. Kempenaers, Ecology and Evolution, 2020.
We did not find evidence for meiotic driver loci on specific chromosomes. However, we observed a weak overall transmission bias toward Timor alleles at centromeres in females (transmission probability of Australian alleles of 47%, nominal p = 6 ? 10?5). While this is in line ...
