Genetic diversity in the model species Brachypodium stacei

brachypodiumOur article of Brachypodium stacei has finally been published today! This is the first article of our PhD student Valeria Shiposha where she has studied population structure and genetic variation among 181 individuals from 19 populations of B. stacei occurring in its predominant range, the western Mediterranean area: mainland Iberian Peninsula, continental Balearic Islands and oceanic Canary Islands. She has found a predominant selfing system with extremely high levels of homozygosity across the analyzed populations. The article is fully available on the open access Journal PeerJ:

Congratulations to all co-authors and especially to Valeria Shiposha for the publication of her first article!! Yeah!!
