Sammanfattning : Sexual dimorphism often constitutes the largest phenotypic variance within species but it is puzzling how sexual dimorphisms evolve because most of the genome is shared between the sexes. Sexually antagonistic (SA) selection on a shared genome sets the stage for intralocus sexual conflict. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Phenotypic differences between the sexes evolve largely because selection favours a different complement of traits in either sex. Theory suggests that, despite its frequency, sexual dimorphism should be generally constrained from evolving because the sexes share much of their genome. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Sexual conflict is broadly defined as a conflict between the evolutionary interests of the two sexes. Depending on the genetic architecture of the traits involved, it can occur at the level of male-female interactions or take the form of selection acting to change the mean of a shared trait against the sign of its genetic correlation.

Sammanfattning : This study has focused on: (i) differences in how males and females use the genes in the genome, (ii) how sex chromosomes evolve and (iii) how the evolutionary rate of genes are affected by the chromosome on which they are located on and the gene expression level they experience. A large-scale microarray was developed for the zebra finch, Taeniopygia guttata and techniques were developed so that this microarray could also be used for wild passerine birds. LÄS MER
