Data from: Relative effects of segregation and recombination on the evolution of sex in finite diploid populations

Xiaoqian Jiang, Shaojun Hu, Qi Xu, Yujun Chang & Shiheng Tao
The mechanism of reproducing more viable offspring in response to selection is considered as a major factor influencing the advantages of sex. In diploids, sexual reproduction combines genotype by recombination and segregation. Theoretical studies of sexual reproduction have investigated the advantage of recombination in haploids. However, the potential advantage of segregation in diploids is less studied. The present study aimed to quantify the relative contribution of recombination and segregation to the evolution of sex in...
