The genome sequence of allopolyploid Brassica juncea and analysis of differential homoeolog gene expression influencing selection

The Brassica genus encompasses three diploid and three allopolyploid genomes, but a clear understanding of the evolution of agriculturally important traits via polyploidy is lacking. We assembled an allopolyploid Brassica juncea genome by shotgun and single-molecule reads integrated to genomic and genetic maps. We discovered that the A subgenomes of B… CONTINUE READING
