Study Detail

TitleDeciphering the evolutionary origins and maintenance of plant diversity in the Alpine Biodiversity Hotspot using next-generation sequencing and high performance computing
Study TypePopulation Genomics
Abstract We build on an intensive inventory and sampling of nearly all vascular plant species occurring in the Alps, a biodiversity hotspot harbouring 20% of the European flora. From a low coverage shotgun sequencing of genomic DNA, we will assemble for each taxon the whole-chloroplast genome and nuclear rib .. [more]
