Abstract Detail

Seed-free Plants at the Genomic Scale

Johnson, Matthew [1], Sigel, Erin [2].

Seed-free Plants at the Genomic Scale.

This is an exciting time to be studying non-model plant systems. The reduced cost of high-throughput sequencing methods and the development of analytical pipelines for analysis of the large amount of data has enabled genome-scale research on seed free plants without the benefit of closely related genomes. Many of these techniques are aimed at reducing the complexity of the genomic data for phylogenetic or population genetic studies, including transcriptome sequencing (RNA-seq), genotyping-by-sequencing (RADseq), and targeted bait capture (Hyb-seq). This colloquium will focus on the applications of these methods in seed-free plants, emphasizing the work of early-career scientists asking a broad array of questions about the evolution of gene families, the genetic consequences of polyploidy, fine-scale biogeography, microbiome diversity, and phylogenetic systematics using hundreds of genes.
