The Genome of Black Cottonwood, Populus trichocarpa (Torr. & Gray)
We report the draft genome of the black cottonwood tree, Populus trichocarpa. Integration of shotgun sequence assembly with genetic mapping enabled chromosome-scale reconstruction of the genome. MoreExpand

Ancestral polyploidy in seed plants and angiosperms
Whole-genome duplication (WGD), or polyploidy, followed by gene loss and diploidization has long been recognized as an important evolutionary force in animals, fungi and other organisms, especiallyExpand

The banana (Musa acuminata) genome and the evolution of monocotyledonous plants
Bananas (Musa spp.), including dessert and cooking types, are giant perennial monocotyledonous herbs of the order Zingiberales, a sister group to the well-studied Poales, which include cereals.Expand

Polyploidy and angiosperm diversification.
Polyploidy has long been recognized as a major force in angiosperm evolution. Recent genomic investigations not only indicate that polyploidy is ubiquitous among angiosperms, but also suggest severalExpand

The minimum information about a genome sequence (MIGS) specification
With the quantity of genomic data increasing at an exponential rate, it is imperative that these data be captured electronically, in a standard format. Standardization activities must proceed withinExpand

Identifying the basal angiosperm node in chloroplast genome phylogenies: sampling one's way out of the Felsenstein zone.
While there has been strong support for Amborella and Nymphaeales (water lilies) as branching from basal-most nodes in the angiosperm phylogeny, this hypothesis has recently been challenged byExpand

A COMBINED 18S rDNA AND rbcL PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF CHLOROMONAS AND CHLAMYDOMONAS (CHLOROPHYCEAE, VOLVOCALES) EMPHASIZING SNOW AND OTHER COLD‐TEMPERATURE HABITATS1
An extensive phylogenetic analysis of the biflagellate genera, Chlamydomonas Ehrenberg and Chloromonas Gobi emend. Wille, was undertaken using 18S rDNA and rbcL gene sequence analysis. Emphasis wasExpand

Patterns of gene duplication in the plant SKP1 gene family in angiosperms: evidence for multiple mechanisms of rapid gene birth.
Gene duplication plays important roles in organismal evolution, because duplicate genes provide raw materials for the evolution of mechanisms controlling physiological and/or morphological novelties.Expand

To B or Not to B a flower: the role of DEFICIENS and GLOBOSA orthologs in the evolution of the angiosperms.
DEFICIENS (DEF) and GLOBOSA (GLO) function in petal and stamen organ identity in Antirrhinum and are orthologs of APETALA3 and PISTILLATA in Arabidopsis. These genes are known as B-function genes forExpand

Phylogenomic analyses of species relationships in the genus Sabal (Arecaceae) using targeted sequence capture
With the increasing availability of high-throughput sequencing, phylogenetic analyses are no longer constrained by the limited availability of a few loci. Here, we describe a sequence captureExpand
