Duplications are considered one of the most important mechanisms for novel generations in evolution, and almost all data sets on eukaryotes contain duplicated genes. This chapter covers the situations that motivate and justify the use of the models considered in this part of the book; strings and rearrangement on strings; balanced strings; and how to deal with multiple copies.

Keywords:   duplications, duplicated genes, genome rearrangements, strings
