About this book

Gene duplication has long been believed to have played a major role in the rise of biological novelty through evolution of new function and gene expression patterns. This book examines gene duplication across all levels of biological organization and presents a comprehensive picture of the mechanistic process by which gene duplication may have played a role in generating biodiversity.
