This study evaluates the gene duplication and polyploidy history of the apple by characterizing duplicated genes in this species using EST data.
The importance and role of origin mythology has varied widely from culture to culture throughout history as well.Darwin was not, however, the first person to propose an evolutionary explanation for the diversity of life on earth.In fact, evolutionary concepts about life date far back into history and arose in many different cultures.Instead, it interferes with that original function, effectively giving neurons more time to wire themselves into a bigger brain. The 10 identified duplications are probably an underestimation, and it is possible that a number of duplications that were not statistically validated in this study (e.g., w2-w3, w2-w5, and w5-w6) will be confirmed in the future as additional gene-mapping information becomes available.dating the duplication event, this finding allowed us to study the effects of the duplication on two separate lineages. These losses could be related to genomic rearrangements that reduced the number of chromosomes from 16 to 9. A thorough analysis of these species will likely reveal other important outcomes of the whole genome duplication. Abstract Whole-genome duplication events polyploidy events and gene loss events have played important roles in the evolution of legumes.
Here we show that the vast majority of Hsf gene duplications resulted from whole genome duplication events rather than tandem duplication, and significant differences in gene retention exist between species.Even in laboratory conditions, gene duplications “do not often evolve to behave like singleton genes even after very long periods of time.” For these reasons, gene duplication is best described as a hypothesis – not a proven scientific fact.
