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. ...
A genome triplication associated with early diversification of the core eudicots
Abstract Background Although it is agreed that a major polyploidy event, gamma, occurred within the eudicots, the phylogenetic placement of the event remains unclear. Results To determine when this polyploidization ...
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 ...
