Abstract

The number of species with completed genomes, including those with evidence for recent whole genome duplication events has exploded. The recently sequenced Atlantic salmon genome has been through two rounds of whole genome duplication since the divergence of teleost fish from the lineage that led to amniotes. This quadrupoling of the number of potential genes has led to complex patterns of retention and loss among gene families. Methods have been developed to characterize the interplay of duplicate gene retention processes across both whole genome duplication events and additional smaller scale duplication events. Further, gene expression divergence data has become available as well for Atlantic salmon and the closely related, pre-whole genome duplication pike and methods to describe expression divergence are also presented. These methods for the characterization of duplicate gene retention and gene expression divergence that have been applied to salmon are described. With the growth in available genomic and functional data, the opportunities to extract functional inference from large scale duplicates using comparative methods have expanded dramatically. Recently developed methods that further this inference for duplicated genes have been described.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 16 May 2016.
All research outputs
#4,182,958
of 15,341,524 outputs
Outputs from Biological Procedures Online
#33
of 117 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#77,513
of 265,664 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Biological Procedures Online
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,341,524 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 71st percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 117 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.7. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 71% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 265,664 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 70% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
