Comparative Genomics in the Genus Populus (Salicaceae).

Populus (~ 29 species) is an economically important genus with a strong history of ecological and evolutionary research. Following the production of a complete genome sequence for P. trichocarpa in 2004, tools became available with which it was possible to more fully investigate, in this and other closely related species, genome-wide patterns of molecular evolution, as well as the nature of genetic control in phenotypic traits such as the timing of bud set. We used tools developed in P. trichocarpa to sequence 20 loci from throughout the Poplar nuclear genome. We describe the utility of these loci for genus-wide studies of molecular evolution, comparative demography, phylogeny, and hybridization.
