Functional innovations of three chronological mesohexaploid Brassica rapa genomes

The Brassicaceae family is an exemplary model for studying plant polyploidy. The Brassicaceae knowledge-base includes the well-annotated Arabidopsis thaliana reference sequence; well-established evidence for three rounds of whole genome duplication (WGD); ... [Published 7thSpace - Jul 18 2014]

Nectar: Sweet Reward from Plants to Attract Pollinators

Evolution is based on diversity, and sexual reproduction is key to creating a diverse population that secures competitiveness in nature. Plants as largely immobile organisms had to solve a problem: they needed to find ways to spread their genetic material ... [Published Science Daily - Mar 17 2014]

Mustard leaves Some Oriental greens emphasise the hot mustard flavour. A variety usually sold as "Red Giant’ mustard has large red-flushed leaves but is often searingly hot, too overpowering to be used on its own, it is best blended with milder-tasting leaves, either as young plants in a salad or the larger leaves in a stir-fry. 'Green in the Snow’ is a low-growing and very fiery mustard, which is incredibly hardy, one of those crops you can literally brush the snow off to throw in among ordinary cabbage or kale to spice things up a bit. These are undeniably good-looking vegetables and their appearance on the plate or in the salad bowl is part of their appeal."
"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
By sequencing Brassica rapa, researchers were able to access half of oilseed rape "s genes without having to wrestle with its large and complicated genome."
