Tiny and Tangled: Unteasing Bryophytes for the Darwin Tree of Life

  • Laura Forrest

As a Genome Acquisition Lab for the Wellcome Trust-funded Darwin Tree of Life project, a major focus at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh is bryophytes. The goal of this phase of the project is to generate high quality genome sequences from one species per family within Britain and Ireland, and our contribution towards this is to obtain fresh material from collections of living mosses, liverworts and hornworts, both from wild habitats and from within the Gardens.
