Evolutionary patterns and coevolutionary consequences of MIRNA genes and microRNA targets triggered by multiple mechanisms of genomic duplications in soybean.


The evolutionary dynamics of duplicated protein-encoding genes (PEGs) is well documented. However, the evolutionary patterns and consequences of duplicated MIRNAs and the potential influence on the evolution of their PEG targets are poorly understood. Here, we demonstrate the evolution of plant MIRNAs subsequent to a recent whole-genome duplication. Overall… (More)
