  • Large-scale gene-sequencing projects that have been undertaken in animals have involved organisms from contrasting taxonomic groups, such as worm, fly and mammal. By contrast, similar botanical projects have focused exclusively on flowering plants. This has made it difficult to carry out fundamental research on how plants have evolved from simple to complex forms — a task that has been very successful in animals. However, in the flowering plants, the many completely or partially sequenced… CONTINUE READING
