Analysis of the giant genomes of Fritillaria (Liliaceae) indicates that a lack of DNA removal characterizes extreme expansions in genome size.
(Wiley Online, 2015-06-08)
Plants exhibit an extraordinary range of genome sizes, varying by > 2000-fold between the smallest and largest recorded values. In the absence of polyploidy, changes in the amount of repetitive DNA (transposable elements ...
Is There an Upper Limit to Genome Size?
Genome downsizing after polyploidy: mechanisms, rates and selection pressures.
An analysis of over 10,000 plant genome sizes (GS) indicate that most species have smaller genomes than expected given the incidence of polyploidy in their ancestries, suggesting selection for genome downsizing. However, ...
