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.

The Genus

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.

Mimulus guttatus Complex

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.

Announcements

Mimulus Meeting 2006 at Duke University
Mimulus Meeting 2007 at NESCent
  • The 7x genome is now completely assembled. This will be the final assembly. Annotation is currently underway as of July 2008.
  • Download the contact info for people who attended the 2007 meeting.

Techniques

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

Seed Collections

Duke University is now the home to the collection of seeds from over 300 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 or information about collection locations.
