    The wtf4 meiotic driver utilizes controlled protein aggregation to generate selective cell death

    Nicole L Nuckolls et al.
    The Wtf4 antidote protein assembles with the Wtf4 poison protein and promotes the transportation of the assembled proteins to the vacuole for sequestration or destruction.

    Genome rearrangements and pervasive meiotic drive cause hybrid infertility in fission yeast

    Sarah E Zanders et al.
    Rapid acquisition of chromosome rearrangements, together with independently acting transmission distorter alleles on each chromosome, drive near complete sterility in fission yeast hybrids.

    Ordered dephosphorylation initiated by the selective proteolysis of cyclin B drives mitotic exit

    James Holder et al.
    Selective APC/C-mediated proteolysis of cyclin B drives progression through the metaphase-anaphase transition whilst wide-spread waves of dephosphorylation co-ordinate the subsequent events of mitotic exit.

    Gene flow mediates the role of sex chromosome meiotic drive during complex speciation

    Colin D Meiklejohn et al.
    Selfish genetic elements may either promote or prevent the evolution of reproductive barriers, depending on the extent of gene flow between species.

    wtf genes are prolific dual poison-antidote meiotic drivers

    Nicole L Nuckolls et al.
    Selfish wtf meiotic drive genes use overlapping transcripts to encode both a trans-acting poison to kill gametes that do not inherit the gene and a gamete-autonomous antidote to specifically rescue the gametes that do.

    Meiotic drive of female-inherited supernumerary chromosomes in a pathogenic fungus

    Michael Habig et al.
    Female-inherited supernumerary chromosomes that lack a male-inherited homolog are transmitted to all meiotic products instead of the expected half, which indicates an additional amplification of unpaired chromosomes during meiosis.

    TRAIP drives replisome disassembly and mitotic DNA repair synthesis at sites of incomplete DNA replication

    Remi Sonneville et al.
    The TRAIP ubiquitin ligase is required during mitosis to disassemble the replisome at sites of incomplete DNA replication, and activate the mitotic DNA repair pathway, thus preserving genome integrity.

    Mycobacterium ulcerans dynamics in aquatic ecosystems are driven by a complex interplay of abiotic and biotic factors

    Andrés Garchitorena et al.
    Different transmission routes of Mycobacterium ulcerans to aquatic organisms may prevail depending on local physico-chemical conditions.

    Atypical meiosis can be adaptive in outcrossed Schizosaccharomyces pombe due to wtf meiotic drivers

    María Angélica Bravo Núñez et al.
    The wtf meiotic drivers change the fitness landscape of meiosis in outcrossed Schizosaccharomyces pombe demonstrating that genetic parasites can favor the evolution of variants that disrupt meiotic fidelity.

    Combinations of Spok genes create multiple meiotic drivers in Podospora

    Aaron A Vogan et al.
    Members of a single gene family determine the genomic basis of multiple coexisting meiotic drive elements in natural populations of Podospora.
