polyploidy

Neobatrachus

Polyploidy plays an important role in evolution and can provide ‘backup’ genetic material, or alternatively, extra genetic material on which evolution can work to...

Chlamydomonas

At present, our knowledge about polyploidy and its consequences is largely based on the signature of WGDs in present-day plant genomes. Although retrospective...

We have recently started building our own artificial framework to mimic biological evolution. In our framework, every Digital Organism (DO) has its own genome, which...

Nature Reviews Genetics 2009

Thousands of species are polyploid. However, the long-term establishment of organisms that have undergone ancient whole genome duplications (WGDs) has been...
