Evolution of neo-sex chromosomes in Silene diclinis.

Abstract:

A small cluster of dioecious species in the plant genus Silene has evolved chromosomal sex determination and sex chromosomes relatively recently, within the last 10 million years (MY). Five dioecious Silene species (section Elisanthe) are very closely related (1-2 MY of divergence) and it was previously thought that all five have similar sex chromosomes. Here we demonstrate that in one of these species, Silene diclinis, the sex chromosomes have been significantly rearranged, resulting in the ...
