F1000 - Post-publication peer review of the biomedical literature
The majority of nematodes are gonochoristic (dioecious) with distinct male and female sexes, but the best-studied species, Caenorhabditis elegans, is a self-fertile hermaphrodite. The sequencing of the genomes of C. elegans and a second hermaphrodite, C. briggsae, was facilitated in part by the low amount of natural heterozygosity, which typifies selfing species. Ongoing genome projects for gonochoristic Caenorhabditis species seek to approximate this condition by intense inbreeding prior todoi:10.3410/f.1163311.625013 fatcat:wqkwv6qjwzhizeagkdac7srsq4
