Botany 2015 Colloquium: Phylogenomics and the 1000 plants (1KP) initiative.
Phylogenomics is a powerful dual action research paradigm for understanding biodiversity. Genome data are used to make robust inferences about phylogenetic relationships and the resulting phylogenies are foundational for comparative analyses aimed at understanding gene and genome evolution. The 1000 plants (1KP) initiative is promoting plant phylogenomics having generated a massive transcriptome database for investigations of both phylogenetic relationships and gene family evolution across the gree tree of life. The botanical research community has contributed material from diverse plant lineages including algae, bryophytes, lycophytes, monilophytes and seed plants. This colloquium, including an exciting set of 15 minute presentations, will illustrate how researchers are accessing these data to make new discoveries and address fundamental questions in plant evolution.
