Modes of Gene Duplication Contribute Differently to Genetic Novelty and Redundancy, but Show Parallels Across Divergent Angiosperms.
PloS one. 2011 Jul 01; 6: e28150.
Both single gene and whole genome duplications (WGD) have recurred in angiosperm evolution. However, the evolutionary effects of different modes of gene duplication, especially regarding their contributions to genetic novelty or redundancy, have been inadequately explored.
