Data from: Meiotic drive shapes rates of karyotype evolution in mammals

Heath Blackmon, Joshua Justison, Itay Mayrose & Emma E. Goldberg
Chromosome number is perhaps the most basic characteristic of a genome, yet generalizations that can explain the evolution of this trait across large clades have remained elusive. Using karyotype data from over 1,000 mammals, we developed and applied a phylogenetic model of chromosome evolution that links chromosome number changes with karyotype morphology. Using our model, we infer that rates of chromosome number evolution are significantly lower in species with karyotypes that consist of either all...
