Large genomes are full of repeated DNA sequences. It was estimated that over half of the human DNA consists of repeated sequences (Baltimore 2001; Eichler 2001; Leem et al. 2002). Tandem duplication is one of the important evolutionary mechanisms for producing repeated DNA sequences, in which the copies that may or may not contain genes are adjacent along the genome. Fitch (1977) first observed that tandem duplication histories are much more constrained than speciation histories and proposed to… CONTINUE READING
