Frog sex chromosomes offer a perfect system for advancing our knowledge of genome evolution and function due to the selection of intercourse dedication systems into the team, the variety of intercourse chromosome maturation states, the convenience of experimental manipulation during very very early development. After shortly sex that is reviewing biology generally speaking, we concentrate on what exactly is known about frog sex determination, intercourse chromosome development, and present, genomics-facilitated advances on the go. In conclusion we highlight gaps inside our knowledge that is current of sex chromosomes, and recommend priorities for future research that will advance broad familiarity with gene dosage and intercourse chromosome development.
