Chromosome and Karyotype Evolution in Plants.

Recent advances in studies of chromosome evolution have broadened this field from standard karyotyping to evolutionary model testing and sequence-based studies of chromosome rearrangements in non-model organisms. These developments have increased the availability of chromosome count data, and they have spurred renewed interest in traditional cytogenetic techniques. However, interaction among researchers using these diverse cytogenetic approaches is limited. In this colloquium, we seek to unite the community of scholars working on chromosome evolution in plants—including research related to karyotype variation, developing evolutionary models, and understanding molecular responses to chromosome damage—in order to synthesize a more holistic approach for future investigations and, hopefully, foster collaborations.
