Nascent, burgeoning, youngest, ‘connecting link between genotype and phenotype’ are just some of the phrases associated with this ‘omics’ where small molecules (metabolites with molecular weight < 2000 Daltons) are studied in biological systems, i.e., metabolomics....

Despite knowledge that concerted evolution of high-copy loci is often imperfect, few studies investigate the extent of intragenomic polymorphisms and comparisons across a large number of species are rarely made. We present a bioinformatic pipeline for characterizing...

Background Studies of ancestry are difficult in tomato because it crosses with many wild relatives and species in the tomato clade have diverged very recently. As a result, the phylogeny in relation to its closest relatives remains uncertain. By using coding sequence...
