Codon Evolution

This chapter focuses on the application of codon models to study the evolution of fungi. The use of codon models to analyse fungal genomes has served many purposes: from establishing the selective forces behind the evolution of gene families, sexual chromosomes, regulatory networks, or host–pathogen interactions, to predicting ecologically relevant regions based on selective pressure profiles of expressed sequence tag or genomic data. Also, we have seen promising applications of codon models to track down functional shifts associated with changes in regulation, host, reproductive mode, or even environmental or lifestyle-associated changes. This chapter concludes by suggesting future applications of codon models in fungi-related studies.
