Genetic Background, Maternal Age, and Interaction Effects Mediate Rates of Crossing Over in Drosophila melanogaster Females

G3-GENES GENOMES GENETICS, 6(5), 1409–1416.

By: C. Hunter n, M. Robinson n, D. Aylor n & N. Singh n

author keywords: meiosis; recombination; aging
MeSH headings : Animals; Crossing Over, Genetic; Drosophila melanogaster / genetics; Female; Genetic Background; Genetic Loci; Genome, Insect; Genomics / methods; Male; Meiosis / genetics; Models, Genetic; Recombination, Genetic
TL;DR: The hypothesis that maternal age influences rates of crossing over in a genotypic-specific manner is tested and a new role of genotype by maternal age interactions in mediating recombination rate is revealed. (via Semantic Scholar)

Population Genomic Analysis Reveals No Evidence for GC-Biased Gene Conversion in Drosophila melanogaster


By: M. Robinson n, E. Stone n & N. Singh n

author keywords: GC-biased gene conversion; Drosophila melanogaster; whole genome; polymorphism and divergence data
MeSH headings : Alleles; Animals; Chromosomes, Insect; Cytosine / metabolism; Drosophila melanogaster / genetics; Evolution, Molecular; Gene Conversion; Genome, Insect; Genomics; Guanine / metabolism; Mutation Rate; Phylogeny; Polymorphism, Genetic
TL;DR: It is suggested that this process of gene conversion in Drosophila melanogaster is unlikely to significantly contribute to patterns of polymorphism and divergence in this system, and the results provide no support for GC-biased gene conversion. (via Semantic Scholar)
