Flow cytometry

We are studying plant genome size diversity and evolution using, amongst other methods, flow cytometry. Dr Ilia Leitch is compiling genome size data on the Plant DNA C-values database. Our analyses of these data have provided insights into the evolutionary significance of the huge range (nearly 2,400-fold) of C-values encountered in land plants. See Dr Ilia leitch‘s website and contact her if you are interested in more details.
