Physcomitrella patens v1.6 (Moss)



Access the latest Physcomitrella patens v1.6 data and information at Phytozome v10

About the genome:


Overview

Physcomitrella patens ssp. patens ecotype Gransden 2004 is a species of moss, which is a basal lineage of land plants, having diverged before the acquisition of well developed vasculature. Thus, it stands in an important phylogenetic position for illuminating the evolutionary development of "higher" plants, including those that are model organisms, such as Arabidopsis, and those of commercial importance, such as poplar, corn, soybean, sorghum, and rice. Having the full Physcomitrella genome sequence is a great asset for reconstructing the evolution of plant genomes and for informing the community in the functional genomics of plants, just as the mouse, Fugu, Drosophila, and other genomes have informed animal biology (from JGI - The Joint Genome Institute).
