Polyploidy, evolutionary opportunity, and crop adaptation

  title={Polyploidy, evolutionary opportunity, and crop adaptation},
  author={Andrew H. Paterson},
The finding that even the smallest of plant genomes has incurred multiple genome-wide chromatin duplication events, some of which may predate the origins of the angiosperms and therefore shape all of flowering plant biology, adds new importance to the molecular analysis of polyploidization/diploidization cycles and their phenotypic consequences. Early clues as to the possible phenotypic consequences of polyploidy derive from recent QTL mapping efforts in a number of diverse crop plants of… CONTINUE READING
