Frog intercourse chromosomes offer a system that is ideal advancing our knowledge of genome evolution and function due to the number 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 reviewing intercourse chromosome biology generally speaking, we concentrate on what’s known about frog sex determination, intercourse chromosome development, and current, genomics-facilitated improvements within the industry. In conclusion we highlight gaps within our knowledge that is current of sex chromosomes, and recommend priorities for future research that may advance broad understanding of gene dosage and intercourse chromosome development.
