Genome duplication events generate a duplicate for every gene in the genome representing a huge opportunity for a step change in organismal complexity however genome duplication presents significant problems for the faithful transmission of a genome from one generation to the next and is consequently a rare event at least in metazoa. Ancient duplication events and a high rate of retention of extant pairs of duplicate genes have contributed to an abundance of duplicate genes in plant genomes these duplicates have contributed to the evolution of novel functions such as the production of floral structures induction of disease resistance and adaptation to stress. Identification of whole genome duplication events in fungal plant and animal evolution such as wolfe and shields 1997 on bakers yeast vision et al 2000 on arabidopsis and dehal and boore 2005 on vertebrates the recently edited book dittmar and liberles 2010 covers a wide range of topics within the current study of gene duplication
