Associated research grant:14/18002-2 - Sapindales: phylogeny and diversification in the Neotropical Region, AP.TEM


Most representatives of Paullinieae and Thouinieae are lianas and their relationship within Sapindaceae are still unclear (depending on molecular markers, different phylogenetic relationships may emerge). Thus, genome-wide analyses represent a promissing approach to: 1) understand these intricated relatioships at the genus level, 2) stablish genus- and (if appropriate) tribe-level circunscriptions for this clade, and 3) investigate the evolution of major morphological characters within the clade. Based on a worldwide sampling, this project will also make possible to understand the biogeographical patterns of the clade. This project will use Illumina sequencing technology and both de-novo (at the genus level) and mapping (species-level within each genus) assemblies. (AU)
