The evolution of land plants: A perspective from horizontal gene transfer
Recent studies suggest that horizontal gene transfer (HGT) played a significant role in the evolution of eukaryotic lineages. We here review the mechanisms of HGT in plants and the importance of HGT in land plant evolution. ...
Transcriptome sequencing of Crucihimalaya himalaica (Brassicaceae) reveals how Arabidopsis close relative adapt to the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau
The extreme environment of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (QTP) provides an ideal natural laboratory for studies on adaptive evolution. Few genome/transcriptome based studies have been conducted on how plants adapt to the ...
Comparative Transcriptomics of Strawberries (Fragaria spp.) Provides Insights into Evolutionary Patterns
Multiple closely related species with genomic sequences provide an ideal system for studies on comparative and evolutionary genomics, as well as the mechanism of speciation. The whole genome sequences of six strawberry ...
Re-analyses of “Algal” Genes Suggest a Complex Evolutionary History of Oomycetes
The spread of photosynthesis is one of the most important but constantly debated topics in eukaryotic evolution. Various hypotheses have been proposed to explain the plastid distribution in extant eukaryotes. Notably, the ...
Genome of Crucihimalaya himalaica, a close relative of Arabidopsis, shows ecological adaptation to high altitude
Crucihimalaya himalaica is a close relative of Arabidopsis with typical Qinghai–Tibet Plateau (QTP) distribution. Here, by combining short- and long-read sequencing technologies, we provide a de novo genome sequence of C. ...
