Origin of the duplicated regions in the yeast genomes

    The genome of Saccharomyces cerevisiae contains several duplicated regions. The recent sequencing results of several yeast species suggest that the duplicated regions found in the modern Saccharomyces species are probably the result of a single gross duplication, as well as a series of sporadic independent short-segment duplications. The gross duplication might coincide with the origin of the ability to grow under anaerobic conditions.
