Within polyploid plant species, it has been demonstrated that homoeologous genes (genes duplicated by polyploidy) often display dynamic expression patterns. To determine if chromosomal location plays a role in establishing these expression patterns, we analyzed the relative levels of homoeolog expression among linked genes from 2 locations in the cotton genome. Genes from the region containing the alcohol dehydrogenase A gene show coordinated expression across several tissues, whereas genes… CONTINUE READING
