Abstract

Species with chromosomal sex determination are susceptible to an evolutionary tug-of-war over sex chromosome segregation. RNA silencing has been proposed to play a role in this intragenomic conflict. Reporting in Developmental Cell, Lin et al. (2018) demonstrate that RNA interference is key to this conflict as a genome defender.
