The Mimulus Genome

The Joint Genome Institute (JGI/DOE) completed 7X coverage of the Mimulus genome in Spring 2007. An assembly of the 7x genome was completed in Summer 2008. Members of the Mimulus Community are currently annotating the Genome. The Mimulus Genome can be accessed though the private intranet at Mimulus Evolution. This is currently a private site, but will be open to the public soon.

Seed Collections

Duke University is now the home to the collection of seeds from over 350 populations of Mimulus. The seed collections are primarily composed of seeds from within the Mimulus guttatus complex. Most of these seeds can be made available for upon request. Please allow a few weeks for orders to be fulfilled. Contact David Lowry at david.lowry@duke.edu for seed requests. See the spreadsheet of collections before making requests.

Techniques

  1. DNA Extraction Protocol
  2. Microsatellite Recipes
  3. Seed Sterilization
