  • Although much progress has been achieved in understanding the genetic basis of adaptation, the drivers of genome evolution remain obscure. For instance, extensive variation among reptilian genomes continues largely unexplained, yet reptiles hold critical clues about vertebrate evolution. Turtles posses diverse chromosome numbers (2N= 28–66) derived from extensive genomic rearrangements, plus varied sex‐determining mechanisms (genotypic and temperature‐dependent). Here, we show that rates of… CONTINUE READING
