Brachypodium distachyon . A New Model System for Functional Genomics in Grasses 1

Abstract

A new model for grass functional genomics is described based on Brachypodium distachyon, which in the evolution of the Pooideae diverged just prior to the clade of “core pooid” genera that contain the majority of important temperate cereals and forage grasses. Diploid ecotypes of B. distachyon (2n 10) have five easily distinguishable chromosomes that… (More)
