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.

This up-to-date overview of theory and mathematical models along with practical examples is suitable for scientists across various levels of biology as well as instructors and graduate students. (, 27 October 2010)
