MEME publication in Mol Biol & Evol

Homa Papoli’s (MEME cohort 2011) Master’s research project on the evolution of sex chromosomes has been accepted for publication in the prestigious journal Molecular Biology & Evolution (impact factor >10). It will soon be published under the titel: H. Papoli Yazdi & H. Ellegren (2014): Old but not (so) degenerated – slow evolution of largely homomorphic sex chromosomes in ratites. Homa is presently a PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig (Germany).
