Researchers from the Sorbonne examined the dynamics of the sex-determining regions of seven brown algal species. Using the Saccharina japonica genome sequence along with genome and transcriptome data on six other brown algal species, the researchers found that a core set of sex-linked genes is conserved across the algae and also uncovered lineage-specific gene loss, gene gain, or gene movement affecting the UV sex chromosomes.
