A Draft Sequence of the Rice Genome (Oryza sativa L. ssp. indica)
A draft sequence of the rice genome for the most widely cultivated subspecies in China, Oryza sativa L. ssp.indica, by whole-genome shotgun sequencing is produced, with a large proportion of rice genes with no recognizable homologs due to a gradient in the GC content of rice coding sequences.
A Draft Sequence of the Rice Genome (Oryza sativa L. ssp. japonica)
The genome of the japonica subspecies of rice, an important cereal and model monocot, was sequenced and assembled by whole-genome shotgun sequencing and suggests that the genome contains 32,000 to 50,000 genes.
The Genomes of Oryza sativa: A History of Duplications
A more inclusive new approach for analyzing duplication history is introduced here, which reveals an ancient whole-genome duplication, a recent segmental duplication on Chromosomes 11 and 12, and massive ongoing individual gene duplications.
The genomes of four tapeworm species reveal adaptations to parasitism
An analysis of tapeworm genome sequences using the human-infective species Echinococcus multilocularis, E. granulosus, Taenia solium and the laboratory model Hymenolepis microstoma offers insights into the evolution of parasitism and identifies new potential drug targets.
EvolView, an online tool for visualizing, annotating and managing phylogenetic trees
EvolView is a web application for visualizing, annotating and managing phylogenetic trees, and a tree and dataset management tool that users can easily organize related trees into distinct projects, add new datasets to trees and edit and manage existing trees and datasets.
A Comparison of Rice Chloroplast Genomes1[w]
The divergence of indica and japonica chloroplast genomes is dated as occurring approximately 86,000 to 200,000 years ago and the intersubspecific variations consisted of 72 single nucleotide polymorphisms and 27 insertions or deletions.
The rubber tree genome reveals new insights into rubber production and species adaptation
A high-quality genome assembly of the Para rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis) is presented, which provides a valuable resource for functional genomics and tools for breeding elite Hevea cultivars.
Evolview v2: an online visualization and management tool for customized and annotated phylogenetic trees
Developments since the last public release include a modern dataset editor with keyword highlighting functionality, seven newly added types of annotation datasets, collaboration support that allows users to share their trees and datasets and various improvements of the web interface and performance.
