Phylogenomics of the olive tree (Olea europaea) reveals the relative contribution of ancient allo and autopolyploidization events

BMC Biol
PMCID: 5785856
PMID: 29370802
DOI: 10.1186/s12915-018-0482-y

[…] ers, several genome size parameters show differences between Olea and Fraxinus. For instance, experimentally inferred 1C genome sizes in picograms are higher in Olea than in Fraxinus according to the Plant DNA C-values database [], and sequencing-based estimates of genome size of olive (1.32 Gb for the cultivated olive and 1.48 Gb for oleaster) [, ] are larger than that of F. excelsior (866.8 Mb) […]


The Small Nuclear Genomes of Selaginella Are Associated with a Low Rate of Genome Size Evolution

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 4898805
PMID: 27189987

call_split See protocol

[…] Genome size data for all available vascular plant taxa were compiled from the Kew Plant DNA C-values database () and those not yet listed in the database from two phylogenetically important surveys (; ), as well as our new estimates for Selaginella taxa. When multiple haploid genom […]


A second generation framework for the analysis of microsatellites in expressed sequence tags and the development of EST SSR markers for a conifer, Cryptomeria japonica

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 3424129
PMID: 22507374
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-13-136

[…] I and PGI), monocots (OSGI), rosid I (OGI), rosid II (AGI), asterid I (NTGI) and asterid II (HAGI). The relationship between genome size and the frequency of EST-SSRs was analyzed using data from the Plant DNA C-values Database [,].The location of SSRs within contigs was estimated using prot4EST (ver. 3.1b) []. This program uses hierarchical steps to identify protein coding regions. ESTScan [] was […]


Correlated evolution of LTR retrotransposons and genome size in the genus eleocharis

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 3095338
PMID: 21118487
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2229-10-265

[…] ost of the analyzed species, genome size is presented here for the first time (Table ). The somatic DNA quantities estimated for E. acicularis (Table ) differ significantly from those reported in the Plant DNA C-values database (0.50 pg []). Therefore, we sampled seven different populations and detected no significant intraspecific variation (2C = 2.47; standard deviation = 0.03 pg; N = 7). Eleoch […]
