Samenvatting

The mechanisms by which sex is genetically determined are bewilderingly diverse and appear to change rapidly during evolution. What makes the sex-determining process so prone to perturbations? Two recent articles explore theoretically the role of genetic conflict in sex determination evolution. Both studies use the idea that selection on sex-determining genes may act differently in parents and in offspring and they suggest that the resulting conflict can drive changes in sex-determining mechanisms.
