A Single, Shared Triploidy in Three Species of Parasitic Nematodes

G3-GENES GENOMES GENETICS, 10(1), 225–233.

By: A. Schoonmaker*, Y. Hao*, D. Bird* & G. Conant n

Contributors: A. Schoonmaker*, Y. Hao*, D. Bird* & G. Conant n

author keywords: polyploidy; evolutionary model; root-knot nematode
MeSH headings : Animals; Evolution, Molecular; Genome, Helminth; Phylogeny; Triploidy; Tylenchoidea / classification; Tylenchoidea / genetics
TL;DR: Three root-knot nematodes of the genus Meloidogyne descend from a single common hybridization event that yielded triplicated genomes with three distinguishable subgenomes, and ancestral loci where two of the three gene copies have been lost are less likely to have orthologs in Caenorhabditis elegans that are lethal when knocked down than are ancestral locu with surviving duplicate copies.

Divergent evolution of arrested development in the dauer stage of Caenorhabditis elegans and the infective stage of Heterodera glycines

GENOME BIOLOGY, 8(10).
