Abstract

The conflict theory is the only hypothesis to have attracted any critical attention for the evolution of genomic imprinting. Although the earliest data appeared supportive, recent systematic analyses have not confirmed the model's predictions. The status of theory remains undecided, however, as post-hoc explanations can be provided as to why these predictions are not borne out.
