Biological relevance of polyploidy : ecology to genomics

  title={Biological relevance of polyploidy : ecology to genomics},
  author={Douglas Edward Soltis and Pamela S. Soltis and Ilia J. Leitch and J Chris Pires},
For several years allopolyploid cottons have been the subject of evolutionary investigations into the genomic mysteries of polyploidy. An array of genomic interactions have been documented, including interlocus concerted evolution, differential rates of genomic evolution and intergenomic sequence transfer. Substantial alterations in gene expression have occurred in response to allopolyploidization, including gene silencing and expression changes that vary by organ. Some of the molecular… CONTINUE READING
