- ... Although transitions from sexual to asexual reproduction are thought to have important evolutionary consequences, little is known about the mechanistic underpinnings of these changes. The cyclical parthenogen Daphnia pulex is a powerful model in which to address these issues because female-limited meiosis suppression can be transmitted to sexual individuals via males, providing the opportunity for ...

- ... We visualised rDNA of two ascomycetes, Cochliobolus heterostrophus and Haematonectria haematococca, by fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) and analysed the condensation state of rDNA during mitosis. Both fungi showed a similar course of change in rDNA condensation corresponding to different mitotic stages. rDNA was decondensed in its entire length at interphase, and became increasingly conde ...

- ... We describe the draft genome of the microcrustacean Daphnia pulex, which is only 200 megabases and contains at least 30,907 genes. The high gene count is a consequence of an elevated rate of gene duplication resulting in tandem gene clusters. More than a third of Daphnia's genes have no detectable homologs in any other available proteome, and the most amplified gene families are specific to the Da ...
