Abnormal chromosome 10 (Ab10) drives preferential transmission of itself and large blocks of condensed repetitive DNA found throughout the genome (knobs). I focus on understanding how Ab10 alters maize growth and development in various environments. This work provides information on the effects of selfish genetic elements (meiotic drive) and maize evolution.
