Plant genome evolution: lessons from comparative genomics at the DNA level

Abstract

Angiosperm genomes show tremendous variability in genome size and chromosome number. Nevertheless, comparative genetic mapping has revealed genome collinearity of closely related species. Sequence-based comparisons were used to assess the conservation of gene arrangements. Numerous small rearrangements, insertions/deletions, duplications, inversions and… (More)
