The copy number of the Y chromosome was estimated separately. In this way, they develop characteristics more like those of single cells.
The clonal evolution of tumor cell populations. The proportion of cell lines within a bin 0. Figure 2C—D shows the X karyotype distributions. Figure 3—figure supplement 2. The transitions between clusters are defined as follows:.
Mendelian genetics in eukaryotic life cycles", U. Females of these species are ZW, and males are ZZ. A fruit fly, for example, has four pairs of chromosomes, while a rice plant has 12 and a dog, Conversely, there are also species in which there is no sexual specialization, and the same individuals both contain masculine and feminine reproductive organs, and they are called hermaphrodites.
