Edible bananas result from interspecific hybridization between Musa acuminata and Musa balbisiana, as well as among subspecies in M. acuminata. Four particular M. acuminata subspecies have been proposed as the main contributors of edible bananas, all of which radiated in a short period of time in southeastern Asia. Clarifying the evolution of these...

Coffee is a valuable beverage crop due to its characteristic flavor, aroma, and the stimulating effects of caffeine. We generated a high-quality draft genome of the species Coffea canephora, which displays a conserved chromosomal gene order among asterid angiosperms. Although it shows no sign of the whole-genome triplication identified in Solanacea...

We present a web server dedicated to the comparison of RNA secondary structures. This server allows to compare pairs of RNA secondary structures and to search, for a given RNA secondary structure, RNA genes with similar structures in a large database of RNA structures. The comparison and search are performed using an edit distance algorithm that co...
Conference Paper

We introduce the notion of conservative edit distance and mapping between two RNA stem-loops. We show that unlike the gen- eral edit distance between RNA secondary structures, the conservative edit distance can be computed in polynomial time and space, and we de- scribe an algorithm for this problem. We show how this algorithm can be used in the mo...
