Keywords:

  • phylogenomic approach to evolutionary dynamics of gene duplication in birds - new genes in gene duplication, as chicken gene families within amniote evolution;
  • age of gene duplications within lineages - fundamental in studies of gene family evolution;
  • dynamics of chicken-specific gene duplication - gene family composition, shaped by gene gain and loss
