Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Sex chromosomes in mammals, birds, reptiles and fish represent many independent evolutionary events, but there is spectacular convergence and stunning parallels. A new study details the early stages of ZW differentiation and sex determination in a flatfish and the establishment of dosage compensation and sex reversal by epigenetic mechanisms including DNA methylation.
