In the plant genome, copy numbers of specific genes may vary because of deletions or duplications, which is a universal biological phenomenon named copy number variation (CNV). Over the years, accumulating studies have revealed and highlighted the correlations between gene copy numbers and multiple characters of plants, including both phenotypic and physiological traits. These discoveries shed light on modern agriculture, as they can potentially provide guidance for plant genetic modifications. Nowadays, the fast-developing computational genomic technologies have enabled confident prediction of gene copy number variations in planta. However, a more urgent need is to validate the gene copy numbers with high-confidence experimental approaches.
