Characterization of the basal angiosperm Aristolochia fimbriata: a potential experimental system for genetic studies
Abstract Background Previous studies in basal angiosperms have provided insight into the diversity within the angiosperm lineage and helped to polarize analyses of flowering plant evolution. ...
Comparative transcriptomics among floral organs of the basal eudicot Eschscholzia californica as reference for floral evolutionary developmental studies
Abstract Background Molecular genetic studies of floral development have concentrated on several core eudicots and grasses (monocots), which have canalized floral forms. Basal eudicots possess a wider range of floral ...
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 ...
Identification of shared single copy nuclear genes in Arabidopsis, Populus, Vitis and Oryza and their phylogenetic utility across various taxonomic levels
Abstract Background Although the overwhelming majority of genes found in angiosperms are members of gene families, and both gene- and genome-duplication are pervasive forces in plant genomes, some genes are sufficiently ...
Comparison of next generation sequencing technologies for transcriptome characterization
Abstract Background We have developed a simulation approach to help determine the optimal mixture of sequencing methods for most ...
