Through sexual recombination
, harmful mutations can be left behind and helpful ones consolidated into the genome.
lindemuthianum, where the authors reported their ability to achieve sexual recombination
as well the ability to form CAT.
reproduce through both clonal division and sexual recombination
(Thompson et al.
Chan and his colleagues focused their work on the laboratory plant Arabidopsis, which has certain genetic mutations that allow it to produce diploid eggs without sexual recombination
It is because the fungus that causes the wheat disease called stripe rust may use sexual recombination
to adapt to resistant varieties of wheat.
There, mild to subtropical climates in areas where sunflowers grow allow the rust fungus, Puccinia helianthi, to skip its winter survival phase and evolve more rapidly via sexual recombination
One quote makes the point: 'One respect in which [memes] are not like genes is that there is nothing obviously corresponding to chromosomes or loci or alleles or sexual recombination
Variation comes forth via mutations and sexual recombination
Lederberg won the Nobel Prize in Medicine at age 33 for scientific work started at age 20, which showed that bacteria can, in fact, reproduce through sexual recombination
According to the Red Queen hypothesis, sexual recombination
increases the probability of progeny escape from parasites adapted to common host genotypes by producing offspring with rare genotypes.
In a finite population reproducing by asexual fission, sexual recombination
coupled with selection allows deleterious mutations to be eliminated from the population (e.
The point in mentioning this complexity in the life cycle of grape phylloxera is to underscore that a key mechanism facilitating adaptation of phylloxera to its environment, sexual recombination
, does not occur commonly in commercial viticulture areas of California.
