(2018-09-24) – New preprint on bioRxiv

Our preprint entitled “Genetic basis and timing of a major mating system shift in Capsella” is now on bioRxiv. In this study, we combine long-read sequencing of the S-locus, genetic mapping and genomic analyses to investigate the genetic basis of a dominant loss of self-incompatibility in C. orientalis.
