To further understand natural variation and local adaptation in the evolution of plant defense, we analyzed polymorphism data of nucleotide-binding site (NBS) sequences of Rhododendron at both the species and population levels. Multiple duplication events were found in NBS sequence evolution in Rhododendron genomes, which resulted in six clades: A–F. Our results of several NBS clade pair comparisons showed significant evolutionary rate changes based on differences in substitution rates between… CONTINUE READING
