CDROM: Phylogenetically Classifies Retention Mechanisms of Duplicate Genes from Gene Expression Data

Classification is based on the recently developed phylogenetic approach by Assis and Bachtrog (2013). The method classifies the evolutionary mechanisms retaining pairs of duplicate genes (conservation, neofunctionalization, subfunctionalization, or specialization) by comparing gene expression profiles of duplicate genes in one species to those of their single- copy ancestral genes in a sister species.
