The grapevine genome sequence suggests ancestral hexaploidization in major angiosperm phyla
The analysis of the first plant genomes provided unexpected evidence for genome duplication events in species that had previously been considered as true diploids on the basis of their genetics.Expand

The rainbow trout genome provides novel insights into evolution after whole-genome duplication in vertebrates
Vertebrate evolution has been shaped by several rounds of whole-genome duplications (WGDs) that are often suggested to be associated with adaptive radiations and evolutionary innovations. Due to anExpand

The banana (Musa acuminata) genome and the evolution of monocotyledonous plants
Bananas (Musa spp.), including dessert and cooking types, are giant perennial monocotyledonous herbs of the order Zingiberales, a sister group to the well-studied Poales, which include cereals.Expand
