Transposable elements (TEs) account for up to 80% of the wheat genome and are considered one of the main drivers of wheat genome evolution. However, the contribution of TEs to the divergence and evolution of wheat genomes is not fully understood. In this study, we have developed 55 miniature inverted-repeat transposable element (MITE) markers that are based(More)
The genetic structure and differentiation of wild emmer wheat suggests that genetic diversity is eco-geographically structured. However, very little is known about the structure and extent of the heritable epigenetic variation and its influence on local adaptation in natural populations. The structure and extent of the heritable methylation-based epigenetic(More)
Natural populations of the tetraploid wild emmer wheat (genome AABB) were previously shown to demonstrate eco-geographically structured genetic and epigenetic diversity. Transposable elements (TEs) might make up a significant part of the genetic and epigenetic variation between individuals and populations because they comprise over 80% of the wild emmer(More)
