Plant genomics serving basic research projects

Basic research aims at increasing the scientific knowledge and the understanding of the biological processes. The CNRGV’s innovation and efficacy plays a key role in assisting such projects.

Using genomic libraries, the decoding of molecular mechanisms at the genomic level is facilitated. Thereby a wide variety of scientific questions can be addressed thanks to the expertise and resources developed at the CNRGV.

Genomic analyses reveal of self-incompatibility in Capsella

This project aims at characterizing the genetic basis and timing of loss of SI in the self-fertilizing crucifer species Capsella orientalis using complementary approaches (long read sequencing of multiple full-length S-haplotypes, genetic mapping, population genomics and expression analyses).

Sunflower

Examining the history and impact of gene content variation in sunflower

The proposed research will contribute to new resources for the sunflower genomics community including new draft genome assemblies and annotations for wild Helianthus annuus and an early domesticate. We will also test our hypothesis that copy number variation has been an important contributor to sunflower domestication, and by combining this knowledge with our gene expression datasets and published trait mapping datasets, we may highlight variants useful for further improvement of agronomic traits like yield, oil content, and stress resistance. Finally, this project will test whether the applications of optical mapping can be extended to identifying large chromosomal variants that distinguish pools of DNAs.
