The parthenogenetic Marmorkrebs (marbled crayfish) produces genetically uniform offspring

  title={The parthenogenetic Marmorkrebs (marbled crayfish) produces genetically uniform offspring},
  author={Peer Martin and Klaus Kohlmann and Gerhard Scholtz},
Genetically identical animals are very much in demand as laboratory objects because they allow conclusions about environmental and epigenetic effects on development, structures, and behavior. Furthermore, questions about the relative fitness of various genotypes can be addressed. However, genetically identical animals are relatively rare, in particular, organisms that combine a high reproduction rate and a complex organization. Based on its exclusively parthenogenetic reproduction mode, it has… CONTINUE READING
