Functional bias in molecular evolution rate of Arabidopsis thaliana
Background Characteristics derived from mutation and other mechanisms that are advantageous for survival are often preserved during evolution by natural selection. Some genes are conserved in many organisms because they ...
Elucidating the Evolutionary Relationships among Bos taurus Digestive Organs Using Unigene Expression Data
Although the nature of ruminant evolution is still disputed, current theory based on physiology and genetic analysis suggests that the abomasum is the evolutionarily oldest stomach compartment, the rumen evolved some time ...
MSOAR 2.0: Incorporating tandem duplications into ortholog assignment based on genome rearrangement
(BioMed Central, 2010)
Background: Ortholog assignment is a critical and fundamental problem in comparative genomics, since orthologs are considered to be functional counterparts in different species and can be used to infer molecular functions ...
