Revolutionizing systematics: Herbaria in the Genomics Age

Liston, Aaron [1].

A decade of herbarium genomics.

Since its commercial release in 2007, massively parallel short-read sequencing has opened the door to herbarium genomics. Exponential increase in sequencing yield over the past decade has generated a progression from targeted and reduced representation approaches to routine whole genome sequencing. Likewise, phylogenetic analyses are moving from the compact plastid genome to the vast nuclear genome. I will briefly review examples from my lab and collaborators illustrating the use of herbarium specimens in genomic research and present my perspective on future promise and challenges. In particular, how do we empower the next generation of plant systematists, who will need to be fluent in both herbarium and genomic approaches?
