Systematics and phylogenomics of Brassicales focusing on the family Capparaceae

Project summary:

The project aims to carry out the most comprehensive phylogeny of Brassicales. Fifty percent of its genera will be next-generation sequenced. As Capparaceae has been undergoing constant reorganizations, all genera of the family will be studied, aiming to improve the understanding of phylogenetic relationships, and the circumscriptions of monophyletic groups.
