In this well timed new 2-volume treatise, specialists from world wide have banded jointly to provide a first-of-its-kind synopsis of the intriguing and fast-paced box of plant evolutionary genomics. In quantity I of Plant Genome variety, an replace is supplied on what now we have discovered from plant genome sequencing tasks. this can be through extra centred chapters at the a number of genomic “residents” of plant genomes, together with transposable components, centromeres, small RNAs, and the evolutionary dynamics of genes and non-coding sequences. recognition is interested in advances in our knowing of plant mitochondrial and plastid genomes, in addition to the importance of duplication in genic evolution and the non-independent evolution between sequences in plant genomes. eventually, quantity I offers an advent to the colourful new frontier of plant epigenomics, describing the present kingdom of our wisdom and the evolutionary implications of the epigenomic landscape.

2003), as exemplified by rice CentO (Cheng et al. 2002) and maize CentC satellites (Ananiev et al. 1998). In most plants examined, centromeric satellites are intermingled with a particular group of gypsy-like elements called centromeric retrotransposons (CRs). CRs were originally found in many grass species, such as CRM in maize (Zhong et al. 2002; Nagaki et al. 2003), CRR and RIRE7 in rice (Kumekawa et al. 2001; Cheng et al. 2002; Nagaki et al. 2005), CEREBA in barley (Presting et al. 1998), CRW in wheat (Liu et al.

As summarized above and discussed in more detail in Chap. 3. Thus, after almost 60 years, Barbara McClintock’s vision, considered radical at the time and dismissed by most, is receiving growing empirical support. Plant research continues to be at the forefront of TE biology, and the ongoing genomic revolution is promised to yield many more exciting discoveries in the years to come. Acknowledgments Research on transposable elements in the authors’ laboratories has been supported by the Grant Agency of the Czech Republic (grant P305/10/0930), grants No AV0Z50040507 and AV0Z50040702 from the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.
