Interrogating the phylogenomics of the Cleomaceae using transcriptomic data.

Recent improvements in the identification and orthology of genes has allowed for next generation sequencing datasets to improve phylogenetic resolution and elucidate genome evolution among plant families. To improve our understanding of the phylogenomics of the Cleomaceae, we sequenced 20 transcriptomes and performed genome survey sequencing across Cleomaceae, Capparaceae, and Brassicaceae. We then used sequence similarity and phylogenomic approaches, as well as a genome guided phylo-transcriptomics approach, to identify orthologs and paralogs. We then used a large single-copy gene list to infer a species tree of the Cleomaceae with Capparaceae and Brassicaceae as outgroups. Collectively, these approaches allowed us to examine and identify the phylogenetic placement of a whole genome triplication that is known to have occurred within the Cleomaceae. We were then able to explore patterns of gene retention and loss and their implications following this genome triplication.
