"Linneage specific genes and evolutionary innovation in mammals"

The birth of new genes de novo from previously non-genic genomic regions is increasingly being recognized as an important mechanism of evolutionary innovation. However, these genes, which do not have homologues outside the species or taxon, remain poorly characterized. Here we used 68 complete genome sequences from different mammalian species to obtain the first global census of protein coding gene families likely to have originated in the past 200 Million years of mammalian evolution.
