Phylogenomic understanding of the tribe Brassiceae.

Despite being the most economically important tribe in the Mustard Family (BRASSICACEAE) and being confirmed monophyletic by both morphological and molecular characters, the relationships within the tribe Brassiceae remain obscured, such as polyphyly in the genera Brassica, Diplotaxis, and Erucastrum. Frequent hybridization and a genome hexaploidy in the tribe's history has made understanding species relationships with chloroplast and ITS DNA difficult, so here we are using a phylogenomic approach to better understand species relationships within the tribe. We utilize transcriptome sequences and genome derived synteny information to improve orthology detection over standard sequence similarity approaches and gain greater insight into the relationships of the tribe.
