In Genome Biology this week, researchers at the University of New Mexico looked at patterns of gene duplication across the S. cerevisiae genome and compared them to those from C. elegans. Analyzing 68 duplication events in S. cerevisiae, they found whole genome duplications to be, for the most part, similar to small-scale duplication events in their "their structural attributes, the discernible length of the duplicated region as well as genomic location," they say in the abstract.
