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. ...
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 ...
Data access for the 1,000 Plants (1KP) project
Abstract The 1,000 plants (1KP) project is an international multi-disciplinary consortium that has generated transcriptome data from over 1,000 plant species, with exemplars for all of the major lineages ...
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 ...
