The Utility of Monocot Transcriptome Data for Reconstructing Phylogeny and Characterizing Ancient Polyploidy.
Great advances in plant molecular systematics have come from recent analyses of plastid genomes. Phylogenomic analysis of nuclear genes is also being conducted through investigations of transcriptome sequences. Unlike plastid genome analyses, transcriptome-based phylogenomics must account for gene and genome duplications and incomplete gene sampling. We will discuss alternative methods for dealing with these issues and the utility of transcriptome data for unraveling phylogenetic relationships, and transcriptome-based phylogenic estimates will be compared with plastome-based trees. We will also show how transcriptome data are being used to estimate the timing of ancient genome duplications throughout monocot history.
