AGA2019 Sex & Asex: The Genetics of Complex Life Cycles
2-4 June 2019, Portland, Oregon

Many organisms across the tree of life have complex life cycles that include both sexual and asexual reproduction, or are obligately asexual. These include organisms that sequentially switch between sexual and asexual forms (for example, Daphnia), organisms whose life histories can include both types of reproduction in the same generation (for examples, marine invertebrates capable of both sexual reproduction and clonal spread, many plants, etc.), and species (including some surprisingly ancient lineages) that appear to have secondarily lost sexual reproduction. Recently, scientists have been applying both theory and empirical work, including genomic and genetic studies, to untangle the evolutionary effects of the amount and timing of sexual and asexual reproduction.
