Dating the Species Network: Allopolyploidy and Repetitive DNA Evolution in American Daisies (Melampodium sect. Melampodium, Asteraceae)

McCann, Jamie; Jang, Tae-Soo; Macas, Jiri; Schneeweiss, Gerald M.; Matzke, Nicholas; Novak, Petr; Stuessy, Tod F.; Villasenor, Jose L.; Weiss-Schneeweiss, Hanna


Allopolyploidy has played an important role in the evolution of the flowering plants. Genome mergers are often accompanied by significant and rapid alterations of genome size and structure via chromosomal rearrangements and altered dynamics of tandem and dispersed repetitive DNA families. Recent developments in sequencing technologies and bioinformatic methods allow for a comprehensive investigation of the repetitive component of plant genomes. Interpretation of evolutionary dynamics following...[Show more]
