Age distribution of γ duplications. (a) The inferred duplication times for 161 γ duplication nodes that support core eudicot-wide duplication (BS ≥50%) were analyzed by EMMIX to determine whether these duplications occurred randomly over time or within some small timeframe. Each component is written as 'color/mean molecular timing/proportion' where 'color' is the component (curve) color and 'proportion' is the percentage of duplication nodes assigned to the identified component. There is one statistically significant component: green/117 (mya)/1. (b) Distribution of inferred γ duplication times from 66 orthogroups that support a eudicot-wide duplication with BS ≥50%. There is one statistically significant component: blue/133 (mya)/1. (c) Distribution of inferred γ duplication times from combination of (a) and (b) shows one significant component: purple/121 (mya)/1. (d-f) Corresponding distributions of inferred duplication times from orthogroups with BS ≥80%. One significant component in (d), green/116 (mya)/1; one in (e), blue/135 (mya)/1; and one in (f), purple/120 (mya)/1.
