Evolution under monogamy feminizes gene expression

|Summary of thesis||
Many genes have evolved sexually dimorphic expression as a consequence of divergent selection in males and females. I am trying to directly test whether genetic constraints have prevented sex-specific optima from being obtained by enforcing a monogamous mating system, which eliminates both female choice and male-male competition.
