Abstract. Polyploidization is a prevalent mode of
genome diversification within plants. Most gene
duplicates arising from polyploidization (paralogs)
are typically lost, although a subset may be main-
tained under selection due to dosage, partitioning of
gene function, or acquisition of novel functions. Be-
cause they experience selection in the presence of
other duplicate loci across the genome, interactions
among genes may also play a significant role in the
