Overview of Polyploidization Analysis

Polyploidization is the phenomenon of having multiple sets of chromosomes. Polyploidization, characterized by chromosome duplication or loss, leads to changes in the characteristics and genetic traits of an organism. Polyploidization plays an important role in the evolutionary genetics of plants and animals, but the development of theories of polyploid population genetics has lagged significantly behind diploidy. These gaps stem from the complexity of polyploid data, such as associations between multiple alleles and motifs, mixed inheritance patterns, ploidy, and mating system variation. In addition, many of the standard tools for population genetics developed for diploids are often not applicable to polyploids. In recent years, bioinformatics analysis has become a powerful tool for studying and understanding polyploidization.
