Comparative transcriptomics of a monocotyledonous geophyte reveals shared molecular mechanisms of underground storage organ formation

Carrie Tribble, Jesús Martínez-Gómez, Fernando Alzate-Guarín, Carl Rothfels & Chelsea Specht
Many species from across the vascular plant tree-of-life have modified standard plant tissues into tubers, bulbs, corms, and other underground storage organs (USOs), unique innovations which allow these plants to retreat underground. Our ability to understand the developmental and evolutionary forces that shape these morphologies is limited by a lack of studies on certain USOs and plant clades; Bomarea multiflora (Alstroemeriaceae) fills a key gap in our understanding of USO molecular development as the first...
