Bynoe’s Gecko genome

The Bynoe’s gecko, Heteronotia binoei, is a very abundant and widespread lizard in Australia.

The common Australian gecko Heteronotia binoei is notable for having triploid parthenogenetic clones across the central and western deserts, these having arisen by repeated hybridisation between western populations two sexual races in the last ~100Ky. This project will develop key genomic resources and data to explore how the parental sexual genomes have been modified in the allopolyploid, asexual lineages.
