Arabidopsis thaliana is believed to have experienced at least two and possibly three whole-genome duplication events in its evolutionary history. In order to investigate the evolutionary relationships between these duplication events and diversification of disease resistance (R) genes, segmental-duplication events containing R genes belonging to the nucleotide binding-leucine rich repeat (NB-LRR) class were identified. Of 153 segmental-duplication events containing NB-LRR genes, only 22… CONTINUE READING
