==Announcements==
-
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 [http://www.mimulusevolution.org/ Mimulus Evolution]. This is currently a private site, but will be open to the public soon.

==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 and working on a final assembly of the sequenced scaffolds. The ''Mimulus'' Genome can be accessed though [http://www.phytozome.net/ Phytozome].
-
The ''Mimulus guttatus'' species complex (yellow monkey flowers) is a group of closely related species exhibiting the common evolutionary transition from outcrossing to self-pollination. ''Mimulus'' presents an excellent model system for studies of evolution because of its broad diversity of floral morphologies, incomplete reproductive barriers, and its amenability to experimental manipulation.

===''Mimulus lewisii'' Complex===
+
-
Mimulus section Erythranthe is a western North American group of perennial wildflowers with a wide diversity of floral forms. Included within this section are the bee-pollinated M. lewisii and the hummingbird-pollinated M. cardinalis. This system has a long history of study (1), and continues to be the subject of active research in systematics (2) and the genetics and ecology of speciation (3-5). Another close relative of M. lewisii is the lesser-studied M. parishii, which is a small-flowered, highly selfing species of the desert Southwest. The diversity of pollination syndrome, mating system, and habitat preference found within this section makes it a uniquely amenable model system for studies in ecology, genetics, and evolutionary biology of natural populations.
