Analysis of flower genes reveals the fate of an ancient gene duplication

... such sequences appear within the chromosome. This kind of preserved gene order is known as genome synteny. In the new work, researchers have used synteny to clarify the evolution of genes essential for the development of floral reproductive organs, stamens and carpels. The subjects of their work were tw...
