“Sometimes when you ask a functional question, you get an evolutionary answer,” says Jennifer Marshall Graves, a leader in the field of epigenetics and comparative genomics. Her team’s vast body of research on Australian fauna has helped the distinguished professor at Melbourne’s La Trobe University (LTU) uncover fundamental insights into mammalian sex chromosomes and sex-determining genes. Elected as an International Member of the National Academy of Sciences in 2019, Graves compared DNA sequences across widely divergent animals and demonstrates in her Inaugural Article (1) that bird and reptile microchromosomes, once thought to be insignificant, are ancient and highly conserved and represent the original building blocks of vertebrate genomes.
