Title:
The somatic genetic and epigenetic mutation rate in a wild long-lived perennial Populus trichocarpa 
Abstract:
Background Plants can transmit somatic mutations and epimutations to offspring, which in turn can affect fitness. Knowledge of the rate at which these variations arise is necessary to understand how plant development contributes to local adaption in an eco-evolutionary context, particularly in long-lived perennials.Results Here, we generated a new high-quality reference genome from the oldest branch of a wild Populus trichocarpa tree with two dominant stems which have been evolving independently...    »
