Differential inheritance of gene content among maize, rice, wheat, and bamboos following ancestral duplications and possible contribution to morphological and physiological differences

Grasses share a whole genome duplication called rho; we used both chromosomal collinearity and gene phylogeny to investigate the pattern of duplicate retention in different grass groups and found differentially retained duplicates that are implicated in environmental adaptations or morphogenesis.
