Friday seminar

By Simen Sandve from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU)


Whole genome duplications has been an important source of novel genomic diversity in the evolution of eukaryotes. The functional redundancy that arise from such genome doubling events is believed to release selective constraints and facilitate evolution of novel molecular adaptations. However, the role of selective forces in shaping novel molecular phenotypes following whole genome duplications is not well understood. In this talk I present insights from comparative transcriptomics and -chromatin accessibility data on how genome duplication in a salmonid fish ancestor impacted genome regulatory evolution.
