Evolutionary genomics combines functional and evolutionary analyses of genome conservation and differentiation. Gene duplication and polyploidy have fundamentally shaped the genomes of Arabidopsis and all angiosperms. Recent comparative studies have focussed on gene regulation, the function of untranscribed genomic regions, and the effects of natural selection on protein function. A large fraction of interspecific protein divergence is probably adaptive, and may be useful for experimental studies of genes and proteins.
