Widespread intersex differentiation across the stickleback genome – the signature of sexually antagonistic selection?

Daniel Berner, Mirjam Bissegger, Telma Laurentino & Marius Roesti
Females and males within a species commonly have distinct reproductive roles, and the associated traits may be under perpetual divergent natural selection between the sexes if their sex-specific control has not yet evolved. We here explore whether such sexually antagonistic selection can be detected based on the magnitude of differentiation between the sexes across genome-wide genetic polymorphisms by whole-genome sequencing of large pools of female and male threespine stickleback fish. We find numerous autosomal genome...
