Female heterogamety: type of genotypic sex determination in which females are heterozygous for the sex-determining locus termed Z and W, as seen in birds, snakes, butterflies, and gingko trees. Our QTL mapping revealed that hybrid sterility and male courtship display traits mapped to the ancestral X chromosome chromosome 19 and the neo-X chromosome chromosome 9 respectively Kitano et al.

Some bacteria use conjugation to transfer genetic material between cells; while not the same as sexual reproduction, this also results in the mixture of genetic traits. Phylogenomic trajectories of extant teleost fishes at chromosomal levels and chromosomal fusion events.
Download citation. Nature —U To trace evolutionary trajectory of the bird-Z chromosome, comparative mapping of the CSB was used among genomes in chromosomal sex determination in fishes ancestral to land in Dubbo vertebrates.
The whole-genome-wide chromosome fusion is of particular interest in evolution. These gametes are the cells that are prepared for the sexual reproduction of the organism. In birds, males often have a more colourful appearance and may have features like the long tail of male peacocks that would seem to put the organism at a disadvantage e.
SRY is presumed to be specific to mammals. Capraro, A. Published : 27 August In fishes, there is evidence that sex chromosome turnover has occurred through multiple mechanisms, including the transposition of an existing male-determination locus to an autosome Woram et al.
