    Evolution of genome size and GC content in Droseraceae

    Previous studies have suggested that carnivory and holokinetic chromosomes might be associated with genome downsizing in plants. Veleba et al. analysed genome evolution in sundews (Droseraceae), a widespread genus that uniquely combines chromosomal holokinetics with carnivory, and their relatives to show that this trend is not universally true. An analysis of genomic parameters and their […] More
