Dynamic expression of imprinted genes associates with maternally controlled nutrient allocation during maize endosperm development

In angiosperms, the endosperm provides nutrients for embryogenesis and seed germination and is the primary tissue where gene imprinting occurs. To identify the imprintome of early developing maize (Zea mays) endosperm, we performed high-throughput …


Karyotype-based genome assembly for Brassicaceae species

KGBassembler: A Karyotype-based Genome Assembler for Brassicaceae Species

**MOTIVATION**: The Brassicaceae family includes the most important plant model Arabidopsis thaliana and many cruciferous vegetable crops. A number of close relatives of Arabidopsis and economically important Brassica species are being sequenced with …
