Article
Brassica napus L. (canola) is one of the world's most economically important oilseeds. Despite our growing knowledge of Brassica genetics, we still know little about the genes and gene regulatory networks underlying early seed development. In this work, we use laser microdissection coupled with RNA sequencing to profile gene activity of both the ma...
Preprint
We profiled the gene regulatory landscape of Brassica napus reproductive development using RNA sequencing. Comparative analysis of this nascent amphidiploid across the plant lifecycle revealed the contribution of each subgenome to plant reproduction. Global mRNA profiling revealed lower accumulation of C ⁿ subgenome transcripts relative to the A ⁿ...
Article
Full-text available
Sclerotinia sclerotiorum is a pathogenic fungus that infects hundreds of crop species, causing extensive yield loss every year. Chemical fungicides are used to control this phytopathogen, but with concerns about increasing resistance and impacts on non-target species, there is a need to develop alternative control measures. In the present study, we...

We profiled the global gene expression landscape across the reproductive lifecycle of Brassica napus. Comparative analysis of this nascent amphidiploid revealed the contribution of each subgenome to plant reproduction. Whole genome transcription factor networks identified BZIP11 as a transcriptional regulator of early B. napus seed development. Kno...
Preprint
Polyploidy has predominated the genetic history of the angiosperms, and allopolyploidy is known to have contributed to the vast speciation of flowering plants. Brassica napus , one of the world’s most important oilseeds, is one such polyploid species originating from the interspecific hybridization of Brassica rapa (A ⁿ ) and Brassica oleracea (C ⁿ...
Poster
Full-text available
This poster describes the anatomical and phylogenetic analysis of mistletoe species spanning two families (Santalaceae and Loranthaceae) and illustrates the key anatomical characteristics that distinguish them. Reduced body form, floral anatomy, and brief phylogeny are used to broadly explain the construction and relations of modern mistletoe speci...
Article
Arceuthobium americanum, the lodgepole pine dwarf mistletoe, is a dioecious parasitic flowering plant infecting lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta subsp. latifolia) in the Pacific Northwest, compromising timber value by stunting the host’s growth. The plant disperses its seeds by explosive discharge, and thus understanding its reproduction is an integr...
Article
Dwarf mistletoes (DM), genus Arceuthobium, are dioecious parasitic flowering plants having prolonged life cycles lasting six years, culminating with explosive discharge of the single seed from the fruit. Arceuthobium americanum, the lodgepole pine dwarf mistletoe, infects lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta subsp. latifolia) in western North America, co...
