TY - CHAP A1 - Venu Vuppu A2 - Nicola Mulder ED1 - Felix Friedberg Y1 - 2011-10-21 PY - 2011 T1 - Analysis of Duplicate Gene Families in Microbial Genomes and Application to the Study of Gene Duplication in M. tuberculosis N2 - The book Gene Duplication consists of 21 chapters divided in 3 parts: General Aspects, A Look at Some Gene Families and Examining Bundles of Genes. The importance of the study of Gene Duplication stems from the realization that the dynamic process of duplication is the “sine qua non” underlying the evolution of all living matter. Genes may be altered before or after the duplication process thereby undergoing neofunctionalization, thus creating in time new organisms which populate the Earth.
