Tef (Eragrostis tef; Poaceae) is an allotetraploid (2n = 4x = 40) cereal crop whose origin within the large genus Eragrostis is unknown. Previous studies have suggested a total of 14 wild Eragrostis species as potential progenitors. Phylogenetic analysis of sequence data from the nuclear gene waxy and the plastid locus rps16 strongly supports the widely held hypothesis of a close relationship between tef and E. pilosa, a wild allotetraploid. Eragrostis heteromera, another previously proposed… 
Molecular phylogeny and reticulate origins of the polyploid Bromus species from section Genea (Poaceae).
TLDR
The origin of polyploid Bromus species of section Genea was investigated using molecular data, and the Waxy gene was the most informative regarding origin of the polyploids.
Comparison of the Complete Eragrostis pilosa Chloroplast Genome with Its Relatives in Eragrostideae (Chloridoideae; Poaceae)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis resolved the monophyly of the sampled Eragrostis species and confirmed the close relationship between E. pilosa and E. tef, and provides useful chlorophyll genomic information for further species identification and phylogenetic reconstruction of Erag Frostis species.
Hybridization and polyploidy of an aquatic plant, Ruppia (Ruppiaceae), inferred from plastid and nuclear DNA phylogenies.
TLDR
This study addresses the current classification of species in the genus, the origin of putative hybrids and polyploids, and the distribution of Ruppia species, and identifies a remarkably discontinuous distribution in two cases.
Complex evolution in Arundinarieae (Poaceae: Bambusoideae): incongruence between plastid and nuclear GBSSI gene phylogenies.
TLDR
This study indicates that the tribe Arundinarieae has undergone a complex evolution, and uses the nuclear GBSSI gene sequences along with those of eight plastid regions for phylogenetic reconstruction, with an emphasis on Chinese species.
A PRELIMINARY PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF THE GRASS SUBFAMILY POOIDEAE (POACEAE), WITH ATTENTION TO STRUCTURAL FEATURES OF THE PLASTID AND NUCLEAR GENOMES, INCLUDING AN INTRON LOSS IN GBSSI
TLDR
The results support a novel set of relationships among Ihe tribes of Pooideae, including the placement of Brachypodieae, Bromeae, Triticeae, and Poeae s.l. within a clade for which a three-nucleotide inversion in ndhF is interpreted as a synapomorphy.
Eragrostis (Poaceae): Monophyly and Infrageneric Classification
TLDR
Molecular sequence data from the plastid locus rps1b and the nuclear gene waxy from a broad sample of Eragrostis species and representatives of six of the seven segregate genera suggest that existing infrageneric classifications are inadequate and do not correspond to monophyletic groups within Erag Frostis.
Genome relationships in polyploid Poa pratensis and other Poa species inferred from phylogenetic analysis of nuclear and chloroplast DNA sequences.
TLDR
The nuclear genome phylogenies presented here show the first evidence of diverse and related genomes in the genus Poa, including the widely grown Kentucky bluegrass.
A molecular phylogeny of Eragrostis (Poaceae: Chloridoideae: Eragrostideae): making lovegrass monophyletic in Australia
TLDR
A phylogeny based on four DNA molecular markers, consistent with recognition of an expanded Eragrostis Wolf in Australia, is presented and the following new combinations for Australian taxa are proposed: E.Peterson and Sporobolus ramigerus (F.K.Simon) R.L.Barrett & P.M. peterson, E. petersen and schultzii var.
Tracking the evolutionary history of polyploidy in Fragaria L. (strawberry): new insights from phylogenetic analyses of low-copy nuclear genes.
TLDR
The results strongly suggest the loss of one GBSSI duplicated copy (GBSSI-1) in the Fragariinae subtribe, and a new pattern summarizing the present knowledge on the Fragaria evolutionary history is proposed.
Evolutionary dynamics of Waxy and the origin of hexaploid Spartina species (Poaceae).
TLDR
The evolutionary dynamics of duplicated copies of the granule-bound starch synthase I gene (GBSSI or Waxy) within polyploid Spartina species are investigated, indicating that this paralogy originated from a duplication that occurred prior to the divergence of Spartina from other Chloridoideae.

The tortoise and the hare: choosing between noncoding plastome and nuclear Adh sequences for phylogeny reconstruction in a recently diverged plant group.
TLDR
The relative utility of seven noncoding cpDNA regions and a pair of homoeologous nuclear genes for resolving recent divergences, using tetraploid cottons (Gossypium) as a model system, is tested, with enhanced resolution obtained using the nuclear genes.
A Phylogeny of Chloridoideae (Poaceae) Based on matK Sequences
TLDR
DNA sequences of the plastid gene matK for 74 species representing 56 chloridoid genera and all tribes and subtribes were used to reconstruct a phylogeny for the Chloridoideae, providing a framework for further studies at the tribal and generic levels.
Phylogeny and subfamilial classification of the grasses (Poaceae)
TLDR
A large collaborative effort has yiel(led a comprehensive study of the phylogeny and a new suhfanilial classification of the grass family (Poaceae/Graminieae) and 1 new subfamily (Danthonioideae) is proposed.
Phylogenetic utility of the nuclear gene malate synthase in the palm family (Arecaceae).
TLDR
A comparison with data sets from noncoding regions of the chloroplast genome indicates that malate synthase sequences are more variable and potentially contain more phylogenetic information, and there is no evidence of multiple copies of the malATE synthase gene in palm genomes.
Genetic characterization of two Eragrostis species using AFLP and morphological traits.
TLDR
Investigation of genetic diversity among four cultivars of tef and 14 accessions of Eragrostis pilosa using radiolabelled and silver stained amplified fragment length polymorphism showed that silver staining could be used as an alternative to radiolabeling at least in genetic diversity analysis.
Analysis of a polyploid complex in Glycine with chloroplast and nuclear DNA
TLDR
Molecular data suggest that polyploids have originated recently, and that dispersal from Australia to the islands of the Pacific has occurred several times.

TLDR
It is indicated that most duplicated genes in allopolyploid cotton evolve independently of each other and at the same rate as those of their diploid progenitors.

TLDR
The joint usage ofrps16 intron and ITS sequences provides a powerful tool for resolving many of the difficult taxonomic issues in the tribeSileneae.
Biochemical Assessment of the Relationships of Eragrostis tef (Zucc.) Trotter with some Wild Eragrostis Species (Gramineae)
TLDR
Great variation was found in E. tef, and different cultivars showed similarities to several different wild Eragrostis species, suggesting the possibility of many species, particularly E. pilosa but also E. aethiopica and E. barrelieri, being involved in the evolution of tef.
