PlnTFDB: updated content and new features of the plant transcription factor database
The Plant Transcription Factor Database (PlnTFDB; http://plntfdb.bio.uni-potsdam.de/v3.0/) is an integrative database that provides putatively complete sets of transcription factors (TFs) and other transcriptional regulators (TRs) in plant species (sensu lato) whose genomes have been completely sequenced and annotated.

The Physcomitrella Genome Reveals Evolutionary Insights into the Conquest of Land by Plants
We report the draft genome sequence of the model moss Physcomitrella patens and compare its features with those of flowering plants, from which it is separated by more than 400 million years, andExpand

The Ectocarpus genome and the independent evolution of multicellularity in brown algae
Brown algae (Phaeophyceae) are complex photosynthetic organisms with a very different evolutionary history to green plants, to which they are only distantly related. These seaweeds are the dominantExpand

The Selaginella Genome Identifies Genetic Changes Associated with the Evolution of Vascular Plants
The genome sequence of a lycophyte hints at ancient evolutionary transitions. Vascular plants appeared ~410 million years ago, then diverged into several lineages of which only two survive: theExpand

The WUS homeobox-containing (WOX) protein family
The WOX genes form a plant-specific subclade of the eukaryotic homeobox transcription factor superfamily, which is characterized by the presence of a conserved DNA-binding homeodomain. The analysisExpand

Genome of an arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus provides insight into the oldest plant symbiosis
Significance The arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis between fungi of the Glomeromycota phylum and plants involves more than two-thirds of all known plant species, including important crop species. ThisExpand

The transcriptome of the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus intraradices (DAOM 197198) reveals functional tradeoffs in an obligate symbiont.
• The arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis is arguably the most ecologically important eukaryotic symbiosis, yet it is poorly understood at the molecular level. To provide novel insights into theExpand

An ancient genome duplication contributed to the abundance of metabolic genes in the moss Physcomitrella patens
Background:Analyses of complete genomes and large collections of gene transcripts have shown that most, if not all seed plants have undergone one or more genome duplications in their evolutionaryExpand

Gene Transfer from Bacteria and Archaea Facilitated Evolution of an Extremophilic Eukaryote
Hot, Toxic Eukaryote Unusually, the single-celled eukaryote red alga, Galdieria sulphuraria, can thrive in hot, acidic springs. This organism is endowed with extraordinary metabolic talents and canExpand

Genome structure and metabolic features in the red seaweed Chondrus crispus shed light on evolution of the Archaeplastida
Red seaweeds are key components of coastal ecosystems and are economically important as food and as a source of gelling agents, but their genes and genomes have received little attention. Here weExpand
