We report the draft genome of the black cottonwood tree, Populus trichocarpa. Integration of shotgun sequence assembly with genetic mapping enabled chromosome-scale reconstruction of the genome. More than 45,000 putative protein-coding genes were identified. Analysis of the assembled genome revealed a whole-genome duplication event; about 8000 pairs of duplicated genes from that event survived in the Populus genome. A second, older duplication event is indistinguishably coincident with the… 

The draft genome of a diploid cotton Gossypium raimondii

Cotton, and probably Theobroma cacao, are the only sequenced plant species that possess an authentic CDN1 gene family for gossypol biosynthesis, as revealed by phylogenetic analysis.

Genome sequence of the palaeopolyploid

A soybean whole-genome shotgun sequence, comprised of 950megabases (Mb) of assembled and anchored sequence, representing about 85% of the predicted genes, is reported here.

Genome sequence of the palaeopolyploid soybean

An accurate soybean genome sequence will facilitate the identification of the genetic basis of many soybean traits, and accelerate the creation of improved soybean varieties.

SNP discovery in black cottonwood (Populus trichocarpa) by population transcriptome resequencing

The results of the sequencing of the transcriptome of developing xylem in 20 accessions with high‐throughput next generation sequencing technology suggest that the current annotation of the poplar genome is remarkably incomplete and that there are many transcripts and novel genes waiting to be annotated.

The genome of the pear (Pyrus bretschneideri Rehd.)

The draft genome of the pear using a combination of BAC-by-BAC and next-generation sequencing is reported, and size differences between the apple and pear genomes are confirmed mainly due to the presence of repetitive sequences predominantly contributed by transposable elements (TEs), while genic regions are similar in both species.

The draft genome sequence of a desert tree Populus pruinosa

A large number of genetic variations were recovered by comparison of the genomes between P. pruinosa and P. euphratica and will provide a valuable resource for studying the genetic bases for the phenotypic and adaptive divergence of the 2 sister species.

Comparative Genomics of Cotton and Arabidopsis

High-density genetic linkage maps reveal the homoeologous relationship between A and D chromosomes, and permit the reconstruction of the gene order of their hypothetical common ancestor, indicating that cotton and Arabidopsis share a useful level of correspondence of gene order.

The Arabidopsis lyrata genome sequence and the basis of rapid genome size change

The 207-Mb genome sequence of the North American Arabidopsis lyrata strain MN47, based on 8.3× dideoxy sequence coverage, is reported, indicating pervasive selection for a smaller genome in this outcrossing species.

Comparative Genomics in Legumes

Comparisons among these genomes show a lack of large-scale genome duplications within the Lotus or Medicago genomes following separation of those lineages approximately 40 mya, evidence of an older shared polyploidy event, and clear evidence of a more recent duplication in soybean following the separation from the Medicago and Lotus common ancestor at approximately 50 mya.

An ancient genome duplication contributed to the abundance of metabolic genes in the moss Physcomitrella patens

Based on a large collection of EST sequences, evidence is provided that the haploid moss Physcomitrella patens is a paleopolyploid as well and metabolic genes seem to have been retained in excess following the genome duplication in P. patens.



The genome sequence of black cottonwood (Populus trichocarpa) reveals 18 conserved cellulose synthase (CesA) genes

A phylogenetic analysis suggests that the CesA genes previously associated with secondary cell wall synthesis originate from a single ancestor gene and group in three distinct subgroups and give rise to a number of new questions concerning the mechanism of cellulose synthesis in trees.

Genomic analysis of the terpenoid synthase (AtTPS) gene family of Arabidopsis thaliana

Phylogenetic analyses highlight events in the divergence of the TPS paralogs and suggest orthologous genes and a model for the evolution of theTPS gene family.

Unravelling angiosperm genome evolution by phylogenetic analysis of chromosomal duplication events

It is shown that a genome-wide duplication post-dates the divergence of Arabidopsis from most dicots, and that additional, more ancient duplication events affect more distant taxonomic comparisons.

Genome-Wide Characterization of the Lignification Toolbox in Arabidopsis1[w]

Together, these data describe the full complement of monolignol biosynthesis genes in Arabidopsis, provide a unified nomenclature, and serve as a basis for further functional studies.

The coding content of Populus and Arabidopsis genomes shows very high similarity, indicating that differences between these annual and perennial angiosperm life forms result primarily from differences in gene regulation.

Genetic analysis of cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenase in loblolly pine: single gene inheritance, molecular characterization and evolution

The presence of a single gene suggests that different regulatory mechanisms for a single Cad gene, rather than differential regulation of several genes, can account for its expression in response to different cues.

A recent polyploidy superimposed on older large-scale duplications in the Arabidopsis genome.

It is concluded that the Arabidopsis lineage underwent at least two distinct episodes of duplication, one of which was a polyploidy that occurred much more recently than estimated previously and probably during the early emergence of the crucifer family.

Large-scale heterospecific segregation distortion in Populus revealed by a dense genetic map

It is hypothesized that divergent selection has occurred on chromosomal scales among the parental species used to create this pedigree, and the evolutionary implications of this observation are explored.

EST data suggest that poplar is an ancient polyploid.

From this analysis, it is clear that all poplar species have shared the same large-scale gene-duplication event, suggesting that this event must have occurred in the ancestor of poplar, or at least very early in the evolution of the Populus genus.
