Recent Cis-Trans Coevolution Driven by the Emergence of A Novel Gene in Drosophila


Young, or newly evolved, genes arise ubiquitously across the tree of life, and can rapidly acquire novel functions that influence a diverse array of biological processes. Previous work identified a young regulatory gene in Drosophila, Zeus, which diverged rapidly from its parent Caf40 and took on roles in the male reproductive system. This… (More)
