Symmetry and Evolution: A Genomic Antagonism Approach

Image source: Dr. Brian E. Staveley  Department of Biology  Memorial University of NewfoundlandSymmetry of structure is pervasive through nature and its failure has interested biologists at least Darwin. Below is a working draft of a manuscript I have written presenting a new perspective on fluctuating asymmetries, based in part, on genomic conflict considerations. This manuscript is slated to be published in Filomena de Sousa and Gonzalo Munévar (Editors) Sex, Reproduction and Darwinism. Pickering & Chatto Publishers of London later this year.  All comments most welcome.
