The mechanisms of speciation have been one of the most debated topics in evolutionary biology. Among all reproductive barriers, postzygotic reproductive isolation is perhaps the one that has attracted the most attention from geneticists. Despite remarkable advances in the identification of loci involved in Drosophila speciation, little is known about the genes, functions, and biochemical interactions of the molecules underlying hybrid sterility and inviability in mammals. Here, we discuss the… CONTINUE READING
