Quotes

...the genomes of B rapa and B oleracea was key to piecing together the canola genome," said Paterson, co-corresponding author for the study. "It's like a genetic love triangle between the three species, with canola sometimes favoring genes from B rapa or B oleracea or sometimes both."
...According to news reporting originating in Bronx New York , by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Selection gradient analysis examines the strength and direction of phenotypic selection as well as the curvature of fitness functions, allowing predictions on and insights into the process of evolution in natural populations. However, traditional linear and quadratic selection analyses are not capable of detecting other features of fitness functions, such as asymmetry or thresholds, which may be relevant for understanding key aspects of selection on many traits."
...College of Agriculture and Life Sciences , whose research team provides the software architecture for this and many other genome research projects. "How does the genetic information stored in the genome help us understand the functions of the organism, and what does the structure of the genome tell us about the evolution of genomes in general?"
"SWEETs are key transporters for transporting photosynthates from leaves to seeds and we believe that the nectarial SWEET9 sugar transporter evolved around the time of the formation of the first floral nectaries, and that this process may have been a major step in attracting and rewarding pollinators and thus increasing the genetic diversity of plants" Frommer said
