Recombination is typically thought of as a symmetrical process resulting in large-scale reciprocal genetic exchanges between homologous chromosomes. Recombination events, however, are also accompanied by short-scale, unidirectional exchanges known as gene conversion in the neighborhood of the initiating double-strand break. A large body of evidence suggests that gene conversion is GC-biased in many eukaryotes, including mammals and human. AT/GC heterozygotes produce more GC- than AT-gametes… Expand
Twisted Signatures of GC-Biased Gene Conversion Embedded in an Evolutionary Stable Karyotype
Meiotic recombination strongly influences GC-content evolution in short regions in the mouse genome.
