Scientists Look Closer on Evolution of Plant's Self-fertilization
Wednesday, 2013/07/03 | 08:18:51

The US Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute has sequenced and compared the genome of Capsella rubella with Capsella grandiflora and members of the closely related Arabidopsis genus to have a better understanding of the effects of selfing of C. rubella's genome.

 

The study, which was published in the June 9 edition of Nature Genetics revealed that C. rubella showed a mass decline of the removal of harmful mutations without a naturally occurring alteration in the amount of genes present that can move between chromosomes. From these findings, it is theorized that a dramatic event left C. rubella in a situation where a need for pollinators outweighed the known negatives of inbreeding and caused the C. rubella to shift into selfing. Though this caused the C. rubella to face a bottleneck, its ancestral genome structure remained intact.
