    • A novel chloroplast gene reported for flagellate plants. 

      Song, M; Kuo, L; Huiet, L; Pryer, KM; Rothfels, CJ; Li, F (American journal of botany, 2018-01)
      PREMISE OF THE STUDY:Gene space in plant plastid genomes is well characterized and annotated, yet we discovered an unrecognized open reading frame (ORF) in the fern lineage that is conserved across flagellate plants. METHODS:We ...
    • An Exploration into Fern Genome Space. 

      Wolf, PG; Sessa, EB; Marchant, DB; Li, F; Rothfels, CJ; Sigel, EM; Gitzendanner, MA; ... (10 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, ...
    • Deciding among green plants for whole genome studies. 

      Pryer, Kathleen M; Schneider, Harald; Zimmer, Elizabeth A; Ann Banks, Jo (Trends in plant science, 2002-12)
      Recent comparative DNA-sequencing studies of chloroplast, mitochondrial and ribosomal genes have produced an evolutionary tree relating the diversity of green-plant lineages. By coupling this phylogenetic framework to the ...
    • Fern genomes elucidate land plant evolution and cyanobacterial symbioses. 

      Li, F; Brouwer, P; Carretero-Paulet, L; Cheng, S; De Vries, J; Delaux, P; Eily, A; ... (10 authors) (Nature plants, 2018-07-02)
      Ferns are the closest sister group to all seed plants, yet little is known about their genomes other than that they are generally colossal. Here, we report on the genomes of Azolla filiculoides and Salvinia cucullata ...
    • Genome-wide direct target analysis reveals a role for SHORT-ROOT in root vascular patterning through cytokinin homeostasis. 

      Cui, Hongchang; Hao, Yueling; Kovtun, Mikhail; Stolc, Viktor; Deng, Xing-Wang; Sakakibara, Hitoshi; Kojima, Mikiko (Plant Physiol, 2011-11)
      SHORT-ROOT (SHR) is a key regulator of root growth and development in Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana). Made in the stele, the SHR protein moves into an adjacent cell layer, where it specifies endodermal cell fate; it ...
    • Intergenic and genic sequence lengths have opposite relationships with respect to gene expression. 

      Colinas, Juliette; Schmidler, Scott C; Bohrer, Gil; Iordanov, Borislav; Benfey, Philip N (PLoS One, 2008)
      Eukaryotic genomes are mostly composed of noncoding DNA whose role is still poorly understood. Studies in several organisms have shown correlations between the length of the intergenic and genic sequences of a gene and the ...
    • One thousand plant transcriptomes and the phylogenomics of green plants. 

      One Thousand Plant Transcriptomes Initiative (Nature, 2019-10-23)
      Green plants (Viridiplantae) include around 450,000-500,000 species1,2 of great diversity and have important roles in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Here, as part of the One Thousand Plant Transcriptomes Initiative, ...
