Abstract

Each of our cells contains a full set of instructions needed to make an entire human: the genome. But a few special species buck this trend. A new study now identifies the first germline-specific gene in zebra finch, one of a small number of vertebrates that are known to undergo developmentally programmed DNA elimination.
