Y chromosome dynamics in dioecious plants: intra- and interspecies genomic . . .
Structuraly diverged sex chromosomes have volved in many animals as well as in some plants. Sex chromosomes represent a specific genomis region(s) with locally suppressed recombination. As a consequence, repetitive DNA accumulates on the Y (W) chromosome structure in selected populations in teo closely realted dioecious species, Silene latifoila and S. dioica. Using flow cytometry, NGS analysis and bioinfrmatics we are investigating which elements are . . .
