Gene conversion is a nonreciprocal recombination process that occurs not only between orthologous regions (allelic gene conversion) but also between paralogous regions (non-allelic or interlocus gene conversion) and this special issue concerns the latter. Growing evidence shows that gene conversion between duplicated genes (or regions) is common and plays significant roles in the early stages of gene duplicates. This special issue aims at covering a wide range of topics about gene conversion between duplicates, from basic molecular biology on the mechanisms to evolutionary genetics and genomics. We welcome reviews and original papers on any kind of topic related to gene conversion.
