Is it possible obtain the sequence of a chloroplast genome from a RNA-Seq? Yes, it is. In this paper, we use a software pipeline to produce quality chloroplast genomes from RNA and compare it with genomic DNA-derived cp genomes. Read more

The first paper of Pedro Lanzas’ doctoral thesis has been published in Evolution. In it we analyze the transmission of a B chromosome in the bulbaceous plant Prospero autumnale, also known as Scilla autumnalis, the autumn squill.
We present in this paper a molecular phylogeny of the genus Moricandia (Brassicaceae). We have found that a Spanish population previously ascribed to Rytidocarpus moricandioides is indeed a Moricandia species, and we propose to name it as M. rytidocarpoides sp. nov. In addition, M. foleyi appeared outside the Moricandia lineage but within the genus Eruca. Therefore, M. foleyi should be excluded from the genus Moricandia and be ascribed to the genus Eruca.

We have published a new paper that identifies the environmental differences between niches occupied by diploids and tetraploids populations of Erysimum mediohispanicum.
Our paper about the dated phylogeny of the red algae Corallinaceae (Corallinales, Rodophita) is now on-line at Journal of Phycology.
In this paper, now in Early view in Molecular Ecology, Muñoz-Pajares et al. explore factors affecting the genetic differentiation among population of Erysimum mediohispanicum. Read more
We have just published a paper in Scientific Reports about the maintenance of the fine scale (< 20m) genetic structure in Erysimum mediohispanicum.
The paper about the phylogeny of the Coralinaceae is now in Early-view. This MS is derived from one chapter of Anja Rösler’s PhD thesis. Read more
Included in Annals of Botany‘s special issue on developmental robustness and species diversity, our papers nalyzes the role of pollinators in the evolution of the phenotypic variation, disparity and integration of the corolla shape of 111 Brassicaceae taxa. Read more
We have analyzed the genetic structure of +B and -B populations of the grasshopper Eyprepocnemis plorans Read more
