Debating the 2R and 3R genome duplication hypotheses.
5. Functional evolution in the ancestral lineage of vertebrates or when genomic complexity was wagging its morphological tail; R. Aburomia, et al. 6. Numerous groups of chromosomal regional paralogies strongly indicate two genome doublings at the root of the vertebrates; L.-G. Lundin, et al. 7. Are (all) fishes ancient polyploids? Y. Van der Peer, et al. 8. More genes in vertebrates? P.W.H. Holland. 9. 2r or not 2R: testing the hypotheses of genome duplication in early vertebrates; A.L. Hughes, R. Friedman. 10.
