Adaptation to environment is the cornerstone of ecological genetics. The subject of this study is a wild relative of the sequenced and annotated model plant species, Arabidopsis thaliana. Caulanthus amplexicaulis var. barbarae lives on serpentine soils, known for high concentrations of heavy metals and low concentrations of essential plant macronutrients, and provides a compelling example of an organism’s adaptation to environment. We constructed an F2 linkage map, using a cross to the… Expand
Genetic analyses of nickel tolerance in a North American serpentine endemic plant, Caulanthus amplexicaulis var. barbarae (Brassicaceae).
TLDR
In this study, nickel tolerance was determined by two major loci with large effects, suggesting that they are adaptive in the natural serpentine environment. Expand
Transcriptome Signatures of Selection, Drift, Introgression, and Gene Duplication in the Evolution of an Extremophile Endemic Plant
TLDR
Analysis of paralogs within each taxon revealed the signature of a period of elevated gene duplication that is shared with other species of the tribe Thelypodieae, and may have played a role in the striking morphological and ecological diversity of this tribe. Expand
Novel nuclear markers inform the systematics and the evolution of serpentine use in Streptanthus and allies (Thelypodieae, Brassicaceae).
TLDR
This work presents a well-resolved phylogenetic hypothesis for the Streptanthoid complex, based on three newly identified and highly variable single copy nuclear regions (AT4G34700, AT1G61620, and At1G56590), and includes data for two chloroplast regions (trnL and trnH-psbA). Expand
Discovery of nuclear and plastid microsatellites, and other key genomic information, in the rare endemic plant (Caulanthus amplexicaulis var. barbarae) using minimal 454 pyrosequencing
TLDR
Analysis of this dataset showed a high level of orthology to annotated genes of the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, as well as low levels of repetitive DNA sequences (particularly transposon-like elements) in the development of molecular-genetic resources for a non-model organism. Expand
Sporadic genetic connectivity among small insular populations of the rare geoendemic plant Caulanthus amplexicaulis var. barbarae (Santa Barbara Jewelflower).
TLDR
Data showed that a substantial component of genetic connectivity of this taxon is not at equilibrium, and instead showed sporadic gene flow, which could provide a foundation upon which to model its future evolutionary potential and long-term viability in a changing environment. Expand
A Time-Calibrated Road Map of Brassicaceae Species Radiation and Evolutionary History[OPEN]
TLDR
A comprehensive time-calibrated framework with important divergence time estimates based on whole-chloroplast sequence data for 29 Brassicaceae species concludes that species radiation, paralleled by high levels of neopolyploidized, follows genome size decrease, stabilization, and genetic diploidization.

Diversity and biogeography of Ni-hyperaccumulators of Alyssum section Odontarrhena (Brassicaceae) in the central western Mediterranean: evidence from karyology, morphology and DNA sequence data
TLDR
New model systems consisting of hyperaccumulator and non-hyperaccumulators of proven phylogenetic affinity are suggested for further research on the molecular mechanisms of Ni- Hyperaccumulation and serpentine tolerance at the diploid and tetraploid level. Expand
The Common Ancestral Genome of the Brassica Species
TLDR
The phylogeny tree and evolution analysis based on the whole genome sequences of several sequenced Brassicaceae species find that the Brassicas are evolved from a tPCK genome, such as the t PCK species S. parvula. Expand
Deciphering the Diploid Ancestral Genome of the Mesohexaploid Brassica rapa[C][W]
TLDR
A two-step merging of three tPCK-like genomes is proposed to form the hexaploid ancestor of the tribe Brassiceae with 42 chromosomes, thus revising the key reference genome for evolutionary genomics of crucifers. Expand
The Brassica rapa Genome
TLDR
The B. rapa Genome Sequencing Initiatives have had an impact on Brassica breeding and the Database for Brassica Genome Studies-BRAD, and the future prospects are still unclear. Expand

Comparative Genetic Mapping in Boechera stricta, a Close Relative of Arabidopsis1[C][W][OA]
TLDR
An F2 genetic map of B. stricta is created based on 192 individuals scored at 196 microsatellite and candidate gene loci and will facilitate the analysis of ecologically relevant quantitative variation in Boechera. Expand
Evolution of genome size in Brassicaceae.
TLDR
Arabidopsis thaliana (1C = 0.16 pg; approximately 157 Mbp) has the smallest genome size in Brassicaceae studied here and apparently represents an evolutionary decrease in genome size. Expand
Comparing the Linkage Maps of the Close Relatives Arabidopsis lyrata and A. thaliana
TLDR
A genetic map of Arabidopsis lyrata, a self-incompatible relative of the plant model species A. thaliana, is constructed and locations and most probable genotype frequencies of transmission ratio distorting loci (TRDL) are estimated with a Bayesian method and the possible reasons for the observed distortions are discussed.

Ancestral Chromosomal Blocks Are Triplicated in Brassiceae Species with Varying Chromosome Number and Genome Size1
TLDR
These findings provide compelling evidence of an ancient hexaploidization event and corresponding whole-genome triplication shared by the tribe Brassiceae, demonstrating the usefulness of comparative cytogenetics for elucidation of phylogenetic relationships. Expand
The dynamic ups and downs of genome size evolution in Brassicaceae.
TLDR
New genome size (GS) data for more than 100 cruciferous species are reported to reveal an apparent paradox between the narrow range of small GSs over long evolutionary time periods despite evidence of dynamic genomic processes that have the potential to lead to genome obesity. Expand
Chromosome triplication found across the tribe Brassiceae.
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships based on the chloroplast 5'-trnL (UAA)-trnF(GAA) region and estimated divergence times based on sequence data of the chalcone synthase gene are congruent with comparative painting data and place Calepina, Conringia, and Sisymbrium outside the clade of Brassiceae species with triplicated genomes.

A prioritized research agenda for comparative genomics in the Brassicaceae is suggested, which includes the development of new model species with novel physiological and ecological traits allows analysis of phenotypes that are not available in A. thaliana. Expand
