Asymmetric subgenome selection and cis-regulatory divergence during cotton domestication

March 2017

Maojun Wang, Lili Tu, Min Lin, Zhongxu Lin, et al.

Scientists from China and the UK scanned the genomes of 352 varieties of cotton, both wild and domestic, to map variants associated with crop domestication throughout its history. They identified 19 candidate variants that may be related to fiber quality. For this project, the team used PippinHT to isolate purified DNA fragments prior to sequencing with an Illumina HiSeq 2000.
