(p.109) Chapter 6 Gene duplication
Evolution through Genetic Exchange

Michael L. Arnold

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers instances where the genetic exchange, in this case resulting in genomic duplications, has derived from sexual reproduction as well as other forms of recombination. It looks at how genetic-exchange-induced duplications are seen as affecting genome evolution, gene function, adaptations and radiations of entire clades. In keeping with the tenor of the entire book, the chapter emphasizes evolutionarily creative outcomes that derive from the duplication of the genomic components of microorganisms, plants, and animals.

Keywords:   genetic exchange, gene duplication, genomic duplication, evolution
