Abstract

Males and females experience divergent selection on many shared traits, which can lead to 'sexual antagonism' - opposing fitness effects of genetic variants in each sex. A new study in the fly Drosophila serrata links sexually antagonistic selection on cuticular hydrocarbons to a single major-effect gene.
