In the Cellinese Lab we investigate the evolution, systematics and biogeography of angiosperms (flowering plants). In addition, we are interested in semantic data integration and interoperability and are developing tools that serve the biodiversity and phyloinformatics communities (e.g., TOLKIN, BiSciCol and RegNum).

Low-copy genes

How can something low makes you feel so high?!  Our first test run with low-copy gene sequences gave excellent (better than expected!) results.  A well resolved topology with great support!  Can't wait to show some results.  We are now working on a paper that focuses on alpine taxa and we will show the first Campanuloideae tree generated with low-copy nuclear genes.
