    ..1% on the basis of heterozygosity. Thus, all three modes of reproduction known in the lab (clonal replication, inbreeding, and outcrossing) have been important in molding genetic variation in this species...

    ..Such tree shapes are therefore not conclusive evidence for a single source of transposition...

    Louise J Johnson
    Institute of Genetics, University of Nottingham, Queens Medical Centre, Nottingham, United Kingdom
    Mol Biol Evol 23:235-9. 2006
    ..We suggest that a single master gene is rarely, if ever, likely to be responsible for the accumulation of any repeat family...

    School of Biological Sciences, University of Reading, Whiteknights Campus, Reading, RG6 6BX, United Kingdom
    Evolution 62:2122-4. 2008
    ..Costly selfish elements are expected to survive only in sexual populations, so sexual species may experience an additional push toward germline-soma distinction, and hence toward cell differentiation and multicellularity...

    Evolution 59:2525-32. 2005
    ..However, under recurrent mutation, alleles for obligate intratetrad mating invade only very slowly, perhaps explaining why outcrossing can persist at low frequencies in a largely intratetrad mating population...
