The complete genomic analysis of Arabidopsis thaliana has shown that a major fraction of the genome consists of paralogous genes that probably originated through one or more ancient large-scale gene or genome duplication events. However, the number and timing of these duplications still remains unclear, and several different hypotheses have been put forward recently. Here, we reanalyzed duplicated blocks found in the Arabidopsis genome described previously and determined their date of… 
Exploiting a Reference Genome in Terms of Duplications: The Network of Paralogs and Single Copy Genes in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
A complete computational strategy to detect both duplicated and single copy genes in a genome is described, discussing all the methodological issues that may strongly affect the results, their quality and their reliability.
Selection-Driven Divergence After Gene Duplication in Arabidopsis thaliana
Gene duplications are one of the most important mechanisms for the origin of evolutionary novelties. Even though various models of the fate of duplicated genes have been established, current
Large-Scale Gene and Ancient Genome Duplications
Duplications of genetic elements can occur by a variety of mechanisms and at different chromosomal and temporal scales. This chapter deals with an important subset of these, namely large-scale gene
A comparative phylogenetic approach for dating whole genome duplication events
TLDR
A large-scale approach to estimate the timing of duplication events in a phylogenetic context is described, demonstrating the usefulness of the approach through genome-scale analysis of Arabidopsis and Oryza (rice) duplications.
Duplication and divergence: the evolution of new genes and old ideas.
TLDR
Concept and technological advances in gene duplication research from this early research in comparative cytology up to recent research on whole genomes, "transcriptomes," and "interactomes" are document.

TLDR
Despite methodological advances and the availability of complete genome sequence data the debate over whether very ancient genome duplications have occurred early in the vertebrate lineage has not yet been fully resolved.
Evidence That Rice and Other Cereals Are Ancient Aneuploids Article, publication date, and citation information can be found at www.plantcell.org/cgi/doi/10.1105/tpc.014019.
TLDR
The genome of the monocotyledonous model plant species rice is analyzed and it is shown that a substantial fraction of all rice genes are found in duplicated segments, suggesting that rice is not an ancient polyploid, but an ancient aneuploid that has experienced the duplication of one—or a large part of one)—chromosome in its evolutionary past, ∼70 million years ago.
Evaluating and Characterizing Ancient Whole-Genome Duplications in Plants with Gene Count Data
TLDR
A new maximum likelihood estimator is used to test for evidence of ancient WGDs in land plants and estimate the fraction of new genes copies that are retained following a WGD using gene count data, the number of gene copies in gene families.
Gene Conversion in Angiosperm Genomes with an Emphasis on Genes Duplicated by Polyploidization
TLDR
A mixed evolutionary model, characterized by a primary birth-and-death process and occasional homoeologous recombination and gene conversion, may best explain the evolution of multigene families.
Importance of Lineage-Specific Expansion of Plant Tandem Duplicates in the Adaptive Response to Environmental Stimuli1[W][OA]
TLDR
This study demonstrates that the expansion of gene families and the retention of duplicates in plants exhibit substantial functional biases that are strongly influenced by the mechanism of duplication, including genes involved in stress responses have an elevated probability of retention in a single-lineage fashion following tandem duplication.

The hidden duplication past of Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
It is shown that heavily degenerated block duplications that can no longer be recognized by directly comparing two segments because of differential gene loss, can still be detected through indirect comparison with other segments and strongly implies that Arabidopsis has undergone three, but probably no more, rounds of genome duplications.
Comparing sequenced segments of the tomato and Arabidopsis genomes: large-scale duplication followed by selective gene loss creates a network of synteny.
TLDR
It is proposed that, on the scale of BAC-sized segments of DNA, chromosomal rearrangements have been only a minor factor in the divergence of genome organization among plants and the dominating factors have been repeated rounds of large-scale genome duplication followed by selective gene loss.
The Ghost of Selection Past: Rates of Evolution and Functional Divergence of Anciently Duplicated Genes
TLDR
An increase in evolutionary rate in about half of the duplicated genes seems to suggest that either positive Darwinian selection has occurred or that functional constraints have been relaxed at one point in time during functional divergence.
Pattern and timing of gene duplication in animal genomes.
TLDR
Although the human genome showed a higher proportion of recent gene duplications than the other animal genomes, the proportion of duplications after the deuterostome-protostome split was constant across families, with no peak of such duplications in four-member families, contrary to the expectation of the 2R hypothesis.
Evidence for an ancient chromosomal duplication in Arabidopsis thaliana by sequencing and analyzing a 400‐kb contig at the APETALA2 locus on chromosome 4 1
TLDR
A contiguous region located on chromosome 4 around the APETALA2 gene was sequenced, and analysis of the sequence and comparison to public databases predicts 103 genes in this area, which represents a gene density of one gene per 3.85 kb.
Comparative genomics provides evidence for an ancient genome duplication event in fish.
TLDR
It is estimated that the unlinked duplicated zebrafish genes are between 300 and 450 Myr, which means that genome duplication could have provided the genetic raw material for teleost radiation and the loss of different duplicates in different populations may have promoted speciation in ancient teleost populations.
Sequence and analysis of chromosome 2 of the plant Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
The sequence of chromosome 2 from the Columbia ecotype is reported in two gap-free assemblies (contigs) of 3.6 and 16 megabases, which represents the longest published stretch of uninterrupted DNA sequence assembled from any organism to date.
Analysis of the genome sequence of the flowering plant Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
This is the first complete genome sequence of a plant and provides the foundations for more comprehensive comparison of conserved processes in all eukaryotes, identifying a wide range of plant-specific gene functions and establishing rapid systematic ways to identify genes for crop improvement.
Dealing with saturation at the amino acid level: a case study based on anciently duplicated zebrafish genes.
TLDR
It is shown that many of these 'outgroup' tree topologies are erroneous and can be corrected when mutational saturation is taken into account and to this end, a Java-based application has been developed to visualize the amount of saturation in amino acid sequences.
Extensive Duplication and Reshuffling in the Arabidopsis Genome
TLDR
Detailed analysis of the Arabidopsis genome showed that the number, order, and orientation of genes were conserved over large regions of the genome, revealing extensive duplication covering the majority of the known genomic sequence.
