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. ...
Genome of the long-living sacred lotus (Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.)
Abstract Background Sacred lotus is a basal eudicot with agricultural, medicinal, cultural and religious importance. It was domesticated in Asia about 7,000 years ago, and cultivated for its rhizomes and seeds as a food ...
Comparative genomic analysis of C4 photosynthetic pathway evolution in grasses
Abstract Background Sorghum is the first C4 plant and the second grass with a full genome sequence available. This makes it possible ...
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 ...
A draft physical map of a D-genome cotton species (Gossypium raimondii)
Abstract Background Genetically anchored physical maps of large eukaryotic genomes have proven useful both for their intrinsic merit and as an adjunct to genome sequencing. Cultivated tetraploid cottons, Gossypium ...
A physical map of the papaya genome with integrated genetic map and genome sequence
Abstract Background Papaya is a major fruit crop in tropical and subtropical regions worldwide and has primitive sex chromosomes ...
