What is it about?

Ancient polyploidy, common throughout the history of flowering plants, has left a legacy of duplicated genes within plant genomes. We found evidence that this genetic diversity was important during the domestication of the diverse crop varieties of Brassica rapa. Not only were genes from ancient polyploidy over-represented among domestication candidate genes, they also harbor more genetic diversity than other genes in the genome of B. rapa.
