The location of the pseudoautosomal boundary in Silene latifolia

Abstract:

Y-chromosomes contain a non-recombining region (NRY), and in many organisms it was shown that the NRY expanded over time. How and why the NRY expands remains unclear. Young sex chromosomes, where NRY expansion occurred recently or is on-going, offer an opportunity to study the causes of this process. Here, we used the plant Silene latifolia, where sex chromosomes evolved ~11 million years ago, to study the location of the boundary between the NRY and the recombining pseudoautosomal region (PA...
