Plant Phylogenomics 1000 plant (1KP) project

genbank versus 1kp on 20120315The 1000 plant project is an international multidisciplinary project generating transcriptomic data for over 1000 plant species representing major lineages of green plants (Viridiplantae). This project has two main goals: firsly, phylogenomic approach to resolving species relationship and secondly, tracing major leaps in evolution of Viridiplantae.

In this study the authors have tried to through light on the phylogenic relationship among land plants and their closest green algal relative using a large taxon set and nulcear genes.
