Gene duplication has been proposed as an accelerator of evolution. Ancient genome duplication events have been identified in diverse organisms, such as yeast, vertebrates, and Arabidopsis. Here, we have identified a whole genome duplication event (WGD) in the rice genome, which took place prior to the divergence of grasses about 70 million years ago (mya).(More)
