Comparative Evolutionary Genomics of Cotton

The Comparative Evolutionary Genomics of Cotton is a developing resource for BAC, EST and gene expression data deriving from phylogenetic analysis with genomic investigations. The underlying project is addressing fundamental questions about morphological evolution, the comparative genetic basis of apparent convergence during repeated domestication of divergent wild progenitors, modes and mechanisms responsible for genome size variation, and the functional and agronomic significance of polyploidy. It is associated with a NSF project (PI. J.
