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 guttatus IM62 genome assembly and preliminary annotation is now available for search and download from Phytozome.
  • Download the contact info for people who attended the 2007 Mimulus meeting in Durham, NC.
  • There are now 436 Mimulus populations currently stored at the Duke University Seed Stock Center, as of March 2009

The Genus Mimulus

The genus Mimulus (historically "Scrophulariaceae," order Lamiales) has been a model plant system for ecological and evolutionary genetics for over 50 years (Vickery, 1951).

  • Check out the poster of the phylogeny of the Mimulus genus.

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 Phytozome.
