The grapevine genome sequence suggests ancestral hexaploidization in major angiosperm phyla
A high-quality draft of the genome sequence of grapevine is obtained from a highly homozygous genotype, revealing the contribution of three ancestral genomes to the grapevine haploid content and explaining the chronology of previously described whole-genome duplication events in the evolution of flowering plants.

Genome-Wide Analysis of Arabidopsis Pentatricopeptide Repeat Proteins Reveals Their Essential Role in Organelle Biogenesis
A detailed bioinformatic analysis of 441 members of the Arabidopsis PPR family plus genomic and genetic data on the expression, localization, and general function of many family members confirm, but massively extend, the very sparse observations previously obtained from detailed characterization of individual mutants in other organisms. Expand
Integrative epigenomic mapping defines four main chromatin states in Arabidopsis
This first combinatorial view of the Arabidopsis epigenome points to simple principles of organization as in metazoans and provides a framework for further studies of chromatin‐based regulatory mechanisms in plants. Expand
Functional Annotation, Genome Organization and Phylogeny of the Grapevine (Vitis vinifera) Terpene Synthase Gene Family Based on Genome Assembly, FLcDNA Cloning, and Enzyme Assays
The highly expanded VvTPS gene family underpins the prominence of terpenoid metabolism in grapevine and is provided with detailed experimental functional annotation of 39 members of this important gene family in Grapevine and comprehensive information about gene structure and phylogeny. Expand
Molecular Basis of Evolutionary Events That Shaped the Hardness Locus in Diploid and Polyploid Wheat Species (Triticum and Aegilops)w⃞
The data suggest that illegitimate DNA recombination, leading to various genomic rearrangements, constitutes one of the major evolutionary mechanisms in wheat species. Expand
Genomic analysis of the terpenoid synthase (AtTPS) gene family of Arabidopsis thaliana
Phylogenetic analyses highlight events in the divergence of the TPS paralogs and suggest orthologous genes and a model for the evolution of theTPS gene family. Expand
High-quality de novo assembly of the apple genome and methylome dynamics of early fruit development
High-quality de novo assembly of the apple genome is produced and genome-wide DNA methylation data suggest that epigenetic marks may contribute to agronomically relevant aspects, such as apple fruit development. Expand
Sequence and analysis of chromosome 4 of the plant Arabidopsis thaliana
Analysis of 17.38 megabases of unique sequence, representing about 17% of the Arabidopsis genome, reveals 3,744 protein coding genes, 81 transfer RNAs and numerous repeat elements. Expand
CATMA: a complete Arabidopsis GST database
The Complete Arabidopsis Transcriptome Micro Array (CATMA) database contains gene sequence tag (GST) and gene model sequences for over 70% of the predicted genes in the Arabidopsis thaliana genome asExpand
T‐DNA integration into the Arabidopsis genome depends on sequences of pre‐insertion sites
A statistical analysis of 9000 flanking sequence tags characterizing transferred DNA (T‐DNA) transformants in Arabidopsis sheds new light on T‐DNA insertion by illegitimate recombination. T‐DNAExpand
