Investigating R gene evolution by meiotic recombination using synthetic gene clusters in Arabidopsis (Virginia Tech, 2008-04-30)Plant gene families organized as linked clusters are capable of evolving by a process of unequal crossing-over. This results in the formation of chimeric genes that may impart a novel function. However, the frequency and ...
