We are performing a massive A. arenosa range-wide population resequencing project aimed at providing a comprehensive view of between- and within-population genomic dynamics in this diverse, wild outcrosser. We are currently completing the first 300 genomes sequenced at 20x for a high-resolution view of these populations that have adapted to a wide range of conditions..
An added bonus is that some of these plants are from Dracula’s castle in Romania, giving this project an evil-cool air.
