    • A first glimpse at genes important to the Azolla–Nostoc symbiosis 

      Pryer, Kathleen; Eily, Ariana; Li, FW (Symbiosis, 2019-01-01)
      © 2019, Springer Nature B.V. Azolla is a small genus of diminutive aquatic ferns with a surprisingly vast potential to benefit the environment and agriculture, as well as to provide insight into the evolution of ...
    • An Exploration into Fern Genome Space. 

      Banks, JA; Der, JP; Gitzendanner, MA; Li, FW; Marchant, DB; Pryer, Kathleen M; Rothfels, CJ; ... (13 authors) (Genome Biol Evol, 2015-08-26)
      Ferns are one of the few remaining major clades of land plants for which a complete genome sequence is lacking. Knowledge of genome space in ferns will enable broad-scale comparative analyses of land plant genes and genomes, ...
    • Between two fern genomes. 

      Banks, JA; Barker, MS; Der, JP; Duffy, AM; Graham, SW; Hasebe, M; Langdale, J; ... (19 authors) (Gigascience, 2014)
      Ferns are the only major lineage of vascular plants not represented by a sequenced nuclear genome. This lack of genome sequence information significantly impedes our ability to understand and reconstruct genome evolution ...
    • Crowdfunding the Azolla fern genome project: a grassroots approach. 

      Li, FW; Pryer, Kathleen M (Gigascience, 2014)
      Much of science progresses within the tight boundaries of what is often seen as a "black box". Though familiar to funding agencies, researchers and the academic journals they publish in, it is an entity that outsiders rarely ...
    • Gaga, a new fern genus segregated from cheilanthes (pteridaceae) 

      Li, FW; Pryer, Kathleen M; Windham, MD (Systematic Botany, 2012-10-01)
      Ongoing molecular phylogenetic studies of cheilanthoid ferns confirm that the genus Cheilanthes (Pteridaceae) is polyphyletic. A monophyletic group of species within the hemionitid clade informally called the "C. marginata ...
    • Phytochrome diversity in green plants and the origin of canonical plant phytochromes. 

      Graham, SW; Li, FW; Mathews, S; Melkonian, M; Pryer, Kathleen M; Rothfels, CJ; Stevenson, DW; ... (9 authors) (Nat Commun, 2015-07-28)
      Phytochromes are red/far-red photoreceptors that play essential roles in diverse plant morphogenetic and physiological responses to light. Despite their functional significance, phytochrome diversity and evolution across ...
    • The evolutionary history of ferns inferred from 25 low-copy nuclear genes. 

      Burge, DO; Chen, L; Chen, T; DeGironimo, L; dePamphilis, C; Deyholos, M; Graham, SW; ... (23 authors) (Am J Bot, 2015-07)
      UNLABELLED: • PREMISE OF THE STUDY: Understanding fern (monilophyte) phylogeny and its evolutionary timescale is critical for broad investigations of the evolution of land plants, and for providing the point of comparison ...
    • The origin and evolution of phototropins. 

      Graham, SW; Li, FW; Mathews, S; Melkonian, M; Pryer, Kathleen M; Rothfels, CJ; Stevenson, DW; ... (9 authors) (Front Plant Sci, 2015)
      Plant phototropism, the ability to bend toward or away from light, is predominantly controlled by blue-light photoreceptors, the phototropins. Although phototropins have been well-characterized in Arabidopsis thaliana, their ...
