General lack of global dosage compensation in ZZ/ZW systems? Broadening the perspective with RNA-seq

Abstract Background Species with heteromorphic sex chromosomes face the challenge of large-scale imbalance in gene dose. Microarray-based studies in several independent male heterogametic XX/XY systems suggest that dosage compensation mechanisms are in place to mitigate the detrimental effects of ge...
