Lunt, D.H. (2008) Genetic tests of ancient asexuality in Root Knot Nematodes reveal recent hybrid origins. BMC Evolutionary Biology 2008, 8:194 doi:10.1186/1471-2148-8-194 (PDF) Abstract Background The existence of "ancient asexuals", taxa that have persisted for long periods of evolutionary history without sexual recombination, is both controversial and important...

  Root Knot Nematodes of the genus Meloidogyne are some of the world's most important crop pathogens. The genus contains a wide range of reproductive modes, with repeated transitions between them. This raises interesting possibilities to investigate the genomic consequences of the loss of meiotic recombination. I...
