Genome of the flowering plant that returned to the sea

    Pers / media: OnderzoekAcademic

    Description

    An international consortium of 35 labs led by University of Groningen Professor of Marine Biology Jeanine Olsen published the genome of the seagrass Zostera marina in the scientific journal Nature on 27 Januar 2016. Seagrasses are the only flowering plants to have returned to the sea, arguably the most extreme adaptation a terrestrial (or even freshwater) species can undergo. They provide a unique opportunity to study the adaptations involved.

      BeschrijvingDe komende jaren krijgt de landbouw steeds vaker te maken met brak water dat over de dijken op de akker komt. En daarom is het nuttig meer te weten over het zeegras-plantje, dat de sprong van zoet naar zout al gemaakt heeft.

      Beschrijving An international consortium of 35 labs led by University of Groningen Professor of Marine Biology Jeanine Olsen published the genome of the seagrass Zostera marina in the scientific journal Nature on January 27th. Seagrasses are the only flowering plants to have returned to the sea, arguably the most extreme adaptation a terrestrial (or even freshwater) species can undergo. They provide a unique opportunity to study the adaptations involved. The Zostera marina genome is an exceptional resource that supports a wide range of research themes, from the adaptation of marine ecosystems under climate warming and its role in carbon burial to unravelling the mechanisms of salinity tolerance that may further inform the assisted breeding of crop plants.
