- Inventory and phylogenetic analysis of meiotic genes in monogonont rotifersSara J Hanson
Department of Biology, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA 52242, USA
J Hered 104:357-70. 2013..The data presented here provide insights into mechanisms of cyclical parthenogenesis and establish expectations for studies of obligate asexual relatives of monogononts, the bdelloid rotifer lineage...
- Using a meiosis detection toolkit to investigate ancient asexual "scandals" and the evolution of sexAndrew M Schurko
Department of Biology and Roy J Carver Center for Comparative Genomics, University of Iowa, IA 52242, USA
Bioessays 30:579-89. 2008..In contrast, their absence would be consistent with the loss of meiosis and asexuality. This approach will help to understand both meiotic gene evolution and the capacity for meiosis and sex in putative obligate asexuals...

Department of Biology and Roy J Carver Center for Comparative Genomics, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA 52242, USA
Trends Ecol Evol 24:208-17. 2009..More broadly, a better understanding of which organisms have sex and how they do it will deepen our understanding of the distribution, maintenance and evolution of sexual reproduction...
