Physcomitrella patens (Phypa_V3)

About Physcomitrella patens

The mosses (Bryophytes) are non-vascular plants that appeared very early in the fossil record, soon after the transition of plants to terrestrial environments. The Physcomitrella patens genome is therefore valuable in understanding early evolution and adaptation of land plants. Physcomitrella also serves as a model organism for studies of physiology and development. Unlike in higher plants, targeted gene knockouts can be made efficiently in the laboratory, thereby facilitating reverse-genetics approaches to studying gene function. The annotated genome hosted here thereby represents an important resource to the plant research community.
