Rubiaceae genome evolution
Right: Maximum likelihood plastid tree (RAxML with GTR model of substitution) based on the whole cp sequences of 28 Ixoroideae (with Antirhea chinensis as outgroup) and bootstrap values to estimate the branch support. Left: Circular visualization of annotated Rubiaceae genomes showing the quadripartite structure of Bertiera breviflora. Ly et al., 2020)
Our objective is to study the phylogenetic relationships between the genera of the subfamily Ixoroideae and to study the evolution of the genome using next generation sequencing data, in collaboration with the Meise Botanical Garden.
