EEB 122 - Principles of Evolution, Ecology and Behavior
Lecture 10 - Genomic Conflict. Genomic conflict arises when the interests of various genomic elements, such as chromosomes and cytoplasmic organelles, are not aligned.
These conflicts arise in two situations: either when one unit is contained within another, as a mitochondrion is contained within a cell, or when inheritance is asymmetrical.
Genomic conflict can thus occur within a cell, within an organism, or between two organisms, such as a mother and developing fetus. There have been several steps taken to avoid
these conflicts in sexual species, including the fairness of meiosis and the uniparental inheritance of cytoplasmic genomes.
