Botany 2016 was a success!

 The Pryer lab made its presence felt at this year’s Botany conference, held in Savannah, GA. Below are a list of the talks presented by current and former members of the lab:

  • A case of mistaken identity revealed as a new species of Cheilanthes s.s.(Pteridaceae).

              Sosa, Karla; Windham, Michael D.; Huiet, Layne; Yatskievych, George A.; Pryer, Kathleen.

  • A small new genus uniting surprisingly disparate cheilanthoid ferns (Pteridaceae).

              Pryer, Kathleen; Windham, Michael D.; Huiet, Layne; Rothfels, Carl.

  • Toward a community-derived classification for lycopods and ferns.

              Schuettpelz, Eric; Schneider, Harald.

  • Next-generation polyploid phylogenetics: Low-cost, high-throughput resolution of hybrid polyploid complexes using PacBio and PURC.

              Rothfels, Carl; Pryer, Kathleen; Li, Fay-Wei.

  • Consistently inconsistent: Transcriptome data reveal widespread molecular evolutionary rate asymmetry in ferns.

              Grusz, Amanda; Schuettpelz, Eric.

  • Phase-Specific Gene Expression in the Homosporous Fern Polypodium amorphum.

              Sigel, Erin; Schuettpelz, Eric; Der, Joshua.

  • Insider trading: Understanding nutrient exchange in the Azolla-Nostoc symbiosis.

              Eily, Ariana; Li, Fay-Wei; Gile, Gillian; Pryer, Kathleen.

  • Fern genomes on the horizon.

             Li, Fay-Wei.

The Fern Bus continues to push the frontiers of fern knowledge forward!
