EMBO Workshop on New shores in land plant evolution

How plants conquered land remains very poorly understood. From comparison between genomes of the filamentous alga Klebsormidium and genomes from bryophytes represented by the model species Physcomitrella and Marchantia it emerges that bryophytes were instrumental in the conquest of the land. Yet additional ongoing genome projects are still required from algal ancestors and a larger spectrum of bryophytes to understand the major events that enabled the transition from a blue (the reign of algae) ...
