Study Detail

TitleDuplications and positive selection drive the evolution of parasitism associated gene families in the nematode Strongyloides papillosus
Study TypeOther
Abstract Gene duplication is one of the major mechanisms that play a role in the evolution of phenotypic complexity and in the generation of novel gene functions. By comparing parasitic and nonparasitic nematodes, a recent study found that the evolution of parasitism in Strongyloididae is associated with a l .. [more]
