Although gene duplication has generally been viewed as a necessary source of material for the origin of evolutionary novelties, the rates of origin, loss, and preservation of gene duplicates are not well understood. Applying steady-state demographic techniques to the age distributions of duplicate genes censused in seven completely sequenced genomes, we estimate the average rate of duplication of a eukaryotic gene to be on the order of 0.01/gene/million years, which is of the same order of… Expand

TLDR
It is shown that a constant–rate birth–death model is appropriate for gene duplication data, allowing us to estimate the rate of gene duplication and loss in the vertebrate genome over the last 200 Myr and show that increasing rates of gene loss reduce the impact of a genome–wide duplication event on the distribution of gene duplications through time.

ALLELIC DIVERGENCE PRECEDES AND PROMOTES GENE DUPLICATION
TLDR
A solution to the paradox of the origin of organismal complexity via the expansion of gene families exists in the form of the deterministic spread of novel duplicates via natural selection. Expand
The Pattern of Evolution of Smaller-Scale Gene Duplicates in Mammalian Genomes is More Consistent with Neo- than Subfunctionalisation
TLDR
It is shown that the properties of the gene death rate and of the accumulation of replacement substitutions are more consistent with neofunctionalisation (or sub functionalisation followed by neofunctionsalisation) than they are with subfunctionalisation alone or any of the other alternative modes of evolution of smaller-scale duplicates.

Computational analysis of the evolutionary dynamics of proteins on a genomic scale
Gene duplication and the accompanying release of negative selective pressure on the duplicate pair is thought to be the key process that makes functional change in the coding and regulatory regionsExpand
Toward a General Model for the Evolutionary Dynamics of Gene Duplicates
TLDR
A general model for duplicate gene loss/retention is presented that is capable of fitting expectations under the different models, is defined at t = 0, and decays to an orthologous asymptotic rate rather than zero, based upon a modified Weibull hazard function. Expand
Whole-Genome Duplications in the Ancestral Vertebrate Are Detectable in the Distribution of Gene Family Sizes of Tetrapod Species
TLDR
It is concluded that the deviation from the power-law that is observed in the empirical data is the result of the two whole-genome duplications that occurred in the ancestral chordate, which implies that the two ancient WGDs continue to have a structural effect on gene families approximately 500 million years after the initial events. Expand
The life and death of gene families
TLDR
Current understanding of gene family evolution is reviewed including methods for inferring copy number change, evidence for adaptive expansion and adaptive contraction of gene families, the origins of new families and deaths of previously established ones, and a perspective on challenges and promising directions for future research are reviewed. Expand
Long-term survival of duplicate genes despite absence of subfunctionalized expression.
TLDR
It is suggested that dosage-sharing of expression, rather than subfunctionalization, is more likely to be the initial factor enabling survival of duplicate gene pairs, and this hypothesis is examined using RNA-seq data from 46 human tissues. Expand
High Spontaneous Rate of Gene Duplication in Caenorhabditis elegans
TLDR
The gene duplication rate in C. elegans is quite high, on the order of 10(-7) duplications/gene/generation, which is two orders of magnitude greater than the spontaneous rate of point mutation per nucleotide site in this species and greatly exceeds an earlier estimate derived from the frequency distribution of extant gene duplicates in the sequenced C. Chengans genome. Expand
Long-Term Asymmetrical Acceleration of Protein Evolution after Gene Duplication
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the prolonged elevated rates of evolution are determined by functional properties that were acquired during, or soon after, the gene duplication event. Expand

Although duplicate genes may only rarely evolve new functions, the stochastic silencing of such genes may play a significant role in the passive origin of new species. Expand

The strength of PAML, in comparison with other phylogenetic packages currently available, is its implementation of a variety of evolutionary models, which include several models of variable evolutionary rates among sites, models for combined analyses of multiple gene sequence data and models for amino acid sequences.
