A physical map of Brassica oleracea shows complexity of chromosomal changes following recursive paleopolyploidizations
Abstract Background Evolution of the Brassica species has been recursively affected by polyploidy events, and comparison to their relative, Arabidopsis thaliana, provides means to explore their genomic complexity. ...
Screening synteny blocks in pairwise genome comparisons through integer programming
Abstract Background It is difficult to accurately interpret chromosomal correspondences such as true orthology and paralogy due to significant divergence of genomes from a common ancestor. Analyses are particularly ...
A physical map for the Amborella trichopoda genome sheds light on the evolution of angiosperm genome structure
Abstract Background Recent phylogenetic analyses have identified Amborella trichopoda, an understory tree species endemic to the forests of New Caledonia, as sister to a clade including all other known flowering plant ...
