    Mutational effects depend on ploidy level: all else is not equal

    Feb 23, 2013 - Ploidy is predicted to influence adaptation directly, yet whether single mutations behave the same in different ploidy backgrounds has not been well studied. It has often been assumed theoretically that aside from dominance, selective parameters do

    Status competition, inequality, and fertility: implications for the demographic transition

    Apr 19, 2016 - The role that social status plays in small-scale societies suggests that status may be important for understanding the evolution of human fertility decisions, and for understanding how such decisions play out in modern contexts. This paper explores

    Regulatory networks integrating cell cycle control with DNA damage checkpoints and double-strand break repair

    Dec 27, 2011 - Double-strand breaks (DSBs), arising from exposure to exogenous clastogens or as a by-product of endogenous cellular metabolism, pose grave threats to genome integrity. DSBs can sever whole chromosomes, leading to chromosomal instability, a hallmark

    The consequences of sequence erosion in the evolution of recombination hotspots

    Dec 19, 2017 - Meiosis is initiated by a double-strand break (DSB) introduced in the DNA by a highly controlled process that is repaired by recombination. In many organisms, recombination occurs at specific and narrow regions of the genome, known as recombination
