Coevolution of the sex chromosomes in Drosophila melanogaster

Posted by Jessica Abbott on behalf of Katrine Lund-Hansen

Since I´m leaving next week, I thought I could give a informal talk about why I have been spending so many hours in the lab.
We wanted to quantify coevolution of the two sex chromosomes in Drosophila through intriguing crosses.
Our results have been surprising and we are still trying to understand them, but they seem to have implication for our understanding of sex chromosome evolution,
sexual antagonism, and speciation.
So there is going to be a lot of talk about flies and sex chromosomes.

Same place, same time, I'll bring fika.
