Evolutionary Genetics and Comparative Genomics

My first preprint and first paper on fungi genomics, mating-type chromosomes and differential gene expression

Differential gene expression is associated with degeneration of mating-type chromosomes in the absence of sexual antagonism

Figure1. Comparisons of differentially expressed (DE) versus non-differentially expressed (non-DE) genes between mating types of Microbotryum lychnidis-dioicae for various degeneration-associated traits within genomic compartments.
Figure2. Significant predictors of the degree of differential expression between mating types of Microbotryum lychnidis-dioicae testing directional effects of degeneration-associated traits.
