The pan‐genome of the cultivated soybean (PanSoy) reveals an extraordinarily conserved gene content
TLDR
A pan-genome of cultivated soybean (Glycine max), termed PanSoy, constructed using the de novo genome assembly of 204 phylogenetically and geographically representative improved accessions selected from the larger GmHapMap collection, is presented. Expand
A Systematic Gene‐Centric Approach to Define Haplotypes and Identify Alleles on the Basis of Dense Single Nucleotide Polymorphism Datasets
TLDR
A gene‐centric approach for haplotype definition was developed and implemented in R and allelic status at four maturity genes is predicted on the basis of marker genotyping data. Expand
Spatially explicit modeling and prediction of shrub cover increase near Umiujaq, Nunavik
A circumpolar increase in shrub growth and cover has been underway in Arctic and subarctic ecosystems for the last few decades, but there is considerable spatial heterogeneity in this shrubificationExpand
Population isolation shapes plant genetics, phenotype and germination in naturally patchy ecosystems
TLDR
It is concluded that geographic isolation likely restricts gene flow, which in turn may affect germination, and it is imperative that conservation programs take into account the patchy nature of naturally patchy ecosystems, rather than targeting a few specific sites with exceptional character for preservation.

The commitment of barley microspores into embryogenesis involves miRNA-directed regulation of members of the SPL, GRF and HD-ZIPIII transcription factor families
TLDR
The transition of microspores toward the embryogenesis pathway involves miRNA-directed regulation of members of the ARF, SPL, GRF and HD-ZIPIII transcription factor families, and it is shown that the role of miRNAs in regulating 41 specific transcripts is validated. Expand
Ex situ germination as a method for seed viability assessment in a peatland orchid, Platanthera blephariglottis.
TLDR
This study showed promising results for the use of ex situ germination as an alternative to previously developed protocols for seed viability assessment of orchids in ecological studies. Expand
Screening populations for copy number variation using genotyping-by-sequencing: a proof of concept using soybean fast neutron mutants
TLDR
This study provides a proof of concept that GBS can be used as an affordable high-throughput method for assessing CNVs in fast neutron mutants, and the modularity of this GBS approach allows combining as many different libraries or sequencing runs as is necessary for reaching the goals of a particular study.

Seed storage behaviour of eight peatland pool specialists: Implications for restoration
TLDR
Investigating the effects of four storage conditions on the seed viability of eight species collected from natural peatland pool margins of eastern Canada found that direct sowing after collection should be preferred for most of the Carex species, while seeds of Scheuchzeria palustris, Drosera intermedia and Rhynchospora alba could be stored, preferably in dry conditions, without impacting introduction success. Expand
Combined use of Oxford Nanopore and Illumina sequencing yields insights into soybean structural variation biology
TLDR
It is demonstrated that long-read and short-read sequencing technologies can be efficiently combined to enhance SV analysis in large populations, providing a reusable framework for their study in a wider range of samples and non-model species. Expand
