Systematics and Evolution of Leptosporangiate Ferns
This work is focused primarily on molecular systematics and phylogenetics of ferns. The researchers are currently undertaking a genome skimming study that will utilize Illumina sequence data collected from across a family of ferns to determine broad patterns of genome structure and repeat content spanning that taxonomic group. Given that there is not yet an assembled and annotated fern genome, this study will illuminate aspects of genome biology in a non-model lineage.
