Study Shows “Relaxed Gene Expression” in Flowering Plants

“Hybridization with chromosome doubling is a prominent mode of species formation and through this study scientists can better understand how different plant groups originated.”

“”Understanding the impacts this process has on genome structure may help understand how best to breed crops for high and stable yields,” said study co-author Pat Schnable, director of the Center for Plant Genomics at Iowa State University.”
