Duplication events are regarded as sources of evolutionary novelty, but our understanding of general trends for the long-term trajectory of additional genomic material is still lacking. Organisms with a history of whole genome duplication (WGD) offer a unique opportunity to study potential trends in the context of gene retention and/or loss, gene and network dosage, and changes in gene expression. In this review, we discuss the prevalence of polyploidy across the tree of life, followed by an… 

Demographic History Inference and the Polyploid Continuum

Polyploidy is an important generator of evolutionary novelty across diverse groups in the Tree of Life, including many crops. However, the impact of whole-genome duplication (WGD) depends on the mode

The Complex History of Genome Duplication and Hybridization in North American Gray Treefrogs

This study utilized anchored hybrid enrichment and high-throughput sequencing to capture hundreds of loci along with whole mitochondrial genomes to investigate the evolutionary history of the North American gray treefrog complex and determined that H. versicolor was most likely formed via autopolyploidization from a now extinct lineage of H. chrysoscelis.

ARPEGGIO: Automated Reproducible Polyploid EpiGenetic GuIdance workflOw

The Automated Reproducible Polyploid EpiGenetic GuIdance workflOw (ARPEGGIO) is the first workflow for the analysis of epigenetic data in polyploids, and utilizes an updated read classification algorithm (EAGLE-RC), to tackle the challenge of sequence similarity amongst parental genomes.

Homoeologous gene expression and co-expression network analyses and evolutionary inference in allopolyploids

An analytical workflow is presented to evaluate a variety of bioinformatic method choices at different stages of RNA-seq analysis, from homoeolog expression quantification to downstream analysis used to infer key phenomena of polyploid expression evolution, and GSNAP-PolyCat outperforms other quantification pipelines tested, and its derived expression dataset best represents the expected homoeologist expression and co-expression divergence.

Unraveling Phylogenetic Relationships, Reticulate Evolution, and Genome Composition of Polyploid Plant Complexes by Rad-Seq and Hyb-Seq

This work for the first time unraveled polyploid phylogenetic relationships and genome evolution within the large Eurasian Ranunculus auricomus species complex comprising more than 840 taxa by using a comprehensive, self-developed bioinformatic pipeline integrating phylogenetic, structure, network, and SNP-origin analyses.

Polyploidy: an evolutionary and ecological force in stressful times

It is proposed that stress response in general is an important and even determining factor in the establishment and success of polyploidy.

Title: Patterns and Processes of Diploidization in Land Plants Shortened Running Title: Diploidization in Land Plants Authors (email; ORCID):

Overall, it is found that lineage and WGD specific attributes influence the evolutionary outcomes of WGD and the process of diploidization in plant genomes.

Balanced Genome Triplication in Wheat Causes Premature Growth Arrest and an Upheaval of Genome-Wide Gene Regulation

Hexaploidy is likely the upper limit of ploidaly level in wheat; crossing this threshold incurs severe ploidy syndrome that is preceded by disruptive dysregulation of global gene expression.

De novo European eel transcriptome provides insights into the evolutionary history of duplicated genes in teleost lineages

The analyses indicated a high accumulation of duplications among freshwater eel genes, which may have originated in a WGD event after the Elopomorpha lineage diverged from the remaining teleosts, and thus not at the 3R.

Genes derived from ancient polyploidy have higher genetic diversity and are associated with domestication in Brassica rapa

The key role of polyploidy in the domestication of B. rapa is demonstrated and support for its importance in the success of modern agriculture is provided.
