    my lab we work on the clade of fungi Saccharomycotina that includes the bakers yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae More than a dozen Saccharomycotina genomes are available for comparison and we are fortunate that they share high levels of synteny so we can align genomic regions and identify homologous genes relatively easily However one surprise has been the substantial number of loci in yeast genomes where the orthologs in different species have diverged enormously in sequence to the point where their BLAST hits are marginal or non existent In these cases it would be impossible to recognize the genes as orthologs without having synteny information We can also study the effect of ancient polyploidization whole genome duplication WGD on yeast genomes because a single WGD event occurred in the common ancestor of six yeast genera We can compare these genera to outgroups whose genomes are not duplicated This reveals very rapid gene loss soon after WGD loss of alternative copies in different species resulting in potential Dobzhansky Muller incompatibilities and the emergence of divergent functions in some of the retained duplicate gene pairs We have inferred the complete structure of the ancestral yeast genome as it existed just before WGD happened Comparing
