    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.

    Gene Drive: A family of killers

    Mickaël De Carvalho, Sarah E Zanders
    Spok genes are meiotic drivers that increase their own chances of transmission by killing gametes that do not inherit them.
