Homeologous gene expression in response to growing temperature in a recent Allopolyploid (Coffea arabica L.).

Allopolyploidy is considered as a major factor contributing to speciation, diversification, and plant ecological adaptation. In particular, the expression of duplicate genes (homeologs) can be altered leading to functional plasticity and to phenotypic novelty. This study investigated the influence of growing temperatures on homeologous gene expression in… CONTINUE READING
