Poaceae phylogenomics paper accepted for publication!
The manuscript about phylogenomics of rare museum Poaceae samples has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Experimental Botany. It deals with a small grass lineage which is the C3 sister group of an important C4 genus. One of the focal species is only known from a single specimen collected 100 years ago!
This article is a result of a collaboration with Guillaume Besnard, Pascal-Antoine Christin, Emeline Lhuillier, Christine Lauzeral, Eric Coissac and Maria Vorontsova.
It is titled "From museums to genomics: old herbarium specimen sheds light on a C3 to C4 transition" and will hopefully be online soon.
