    Monocot genomic diversity includes striking variation atmany levels. This paper compares various genomic characters (e.g., range of chromosome numbers and ploidy levels, occurrence of endopolyploidy, GC content, chromosome packaging and organization, genome size) between monocots and the...

    An important objective in evolutionary developmental biology is to understand the molecular genetic mechanisms that have given rise to morphological diversity. Leaves in angiosperms generally develop as a flattened structure with clear adaxial–abaxial polarity. In monocots, however, a...

    A compensatory mutation (CM) counter balances lethal effects of a deleterious mutation (DM), ensuring the persistence of both through natural selection. However, little is known about the biological aspects of CMs those restore the structural alterations of proteins caused by slightly DMs. Here,...

    Background: Various expansions or contractions of inverted repeats (IRs) in chloroplast genomes led to fluxes in the IR-LSC (large single copy) junctions. Previous studies revealed that some monocot IRs contain a trnH-rps19 gene cluster, and it has been speculated that this may be an evidence of...

    Background: The adverse environmental conditions impose extreme limitation to growth and plant development, restricting the genetic potential and reflecting on plant yield losses. The progress obtained by classic plant breeding methods aiming at increasing abiotic stress tolerances have not been...

    Plant genomes are complex and contain large amounts of repetitive DNA including microsatellites that are distributed across entire genomes. Whole genome sequences of several monocot and dicot plants that are available in the public domain provide an opportunity to study the origin, distribution...

    The article presents a research study which tests the hypotheses that changes in TCP and B-class gene developmental function underlie flower symmetry evolution in the monocot family Commelinaceae. The study compares expression patterns of teosinte branched1 (TB1)-like, DEFICIENS (DEF)-like, and...
