The Sorghum bicolor genome and the diversification of grasses
Sorghum, an African grass related to sugar cane and maize, is grown for food, feed, fibre and fuel. We present an initial analysis of the ∼730-megabase Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench genome, placingExpand

Mapping QTLs with epistatic effects and QTL×environment interactions by mixed linear model approaches
Abstract A new methodology based on mixed linear models was developed for mapping QTLs with digenic epistasis and QTL×environment (QE) interactions. Reliable estimates of QTL main effects (additiveExpand

Early allopolyploid evolution in the post-Neolithic Brassica napus oilseed genome
The genomic origins of rape oilseed Many domesticated plants arose through the meeting of multiple genomes through hybridization and genome doubling, known as polyploidy. Chalhoub et al. sequencedExpand

MCScanX: a toolkit for detection and evolutionary analysis of gene synteny and collinearity
MCScan is an algorithm able to scan multiple genomes or subgenomes in order to identify putative homologous chromosomal regions, and align these regions using genes as anchors. The MCScanX toolkitExpand

The tomato genome sequence provides insights into fleshy fruit evolution
Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) is a major crop plant and a model system for fruit development. Solanum is one of the largest angiosperm genera and includes annual and perennial plants from diverseExpand

Ancient polyploidization predating divergence of the cereals, and its consequences for comparative genomics.
Integration of structural genomic data from a largely assembled rice genome sequence, with phylogenetic analysis of sequence samples for many other taxa, suggests that a polyploidization eventExpand

Unravelling angiosperm genome evolution by phylogenetic analysis of chromosomal duplication events
Conservation of gene order in vertebrates is evident after hundreds of millions of years of divergence, but comparisons of the Arabidopsis thaliana sequence to partial gene orders of otherExpand

Resolution of quantitative traits into Mendelian factors by using a complete linkage map of restriction fragment length polymorphisms
The conflict between the Mendelian theory of participate inheritance1 and the observation of continuous variation for most traits in nature was resolved in the early 1900s by the concept thatExpand

Sequence and comparative analysis of the chicken genome provide unique perspectives on vertebrate evolution
We present here a draft genome sequence of the red jungle fowl, Gallus gallus. Because the chicken is a modern descendant of the dinosaurs and the first non-mammalian amniote to have its genomeExpand

Repeated polyploidization of Gossypium genomes and the evolution of spinnable cotton fibres
Polyploidy often confers emergent properties, such as the higher fibre productivity and quality of tetraploid cottons than diploid cottons bred for the same environments. Here we show that an abruptExpand
