Phylogenetic relationships of Noccaea Moench (Brassicaceae) species from high-throughput genomic data

The genus Noccaea Moench (Brassicaceae) is one of the most problematic genera among crucifers. Phylogenetic relationships among species complexes in Noccaea are still unclear due to low level of mutation in commonly used loci including ITS, trnL-F etc. Therefore we are using next-generation RADseq data to resolve phylogenetic relationships in these problematic species complexes. Additionally we are planning to model trait evolution (annual vs. perennial life form, presence horn in fruit vs. absence etc.) in Noccaea.

Phylogeography of Noccaea iberidea (Boiss.) Al-Shehbaz & Menke

The main goal of the project is to test responds of a high alpine plant- N. iberidea- (as a model species) to climate change during Pleistocene by using molecular and ecological niche modelling data.
