Patterns between the parents: whole-genome comparison of two diploids in the Tragopogon triangle.

Within the Pacific Northwest of the United States, three species of the genus Tragopogon (Asteraceae) have made secondary contact after extensive isolation in Europe, resulting in the formation of two recently formed (ca. 90 years) polyploid species, T. mirus and T. miscellus. We have sequenced the genomes of the diploid parents of T. miscellus, T. dubius and T. pratensis, to better understand the divergence in genome content and structure between the parents of a well-characterized, naturally occurring polyploid and to lay the groundwork for deeper characterization of each subgenome of the polyploid itself. This poster will present our progress on the assembly, annotation, and subsequent analyses of the parent genomes in a comparative framework, as well as outlining our strategies for conducting whole-genome analysis under the limitations of only having short-read data (in the case of T. pratensis).
