Data from: PCR duplication: a one-step cloning-free method to generate duplicated chromosomal loci and interference-free expression reporters in yeast

Florian Huber, Matthias Meurer, Daria Bunina, Ilia Kats, Céline I. Maeder, Martin Štefl, Cyril Mongis & Michael Knop
Here, we report on a novel PCR targeting-based strategy called ‘PCR duplication’ that enables targeted duplications of genomic regions in the yeast genome using a simple PCR-based approach. To demonstrate its application we first duplicated the promoter of the FAR1 gene in yeast and simultaneously inserted a GFP downstream of it. This created a reporter for promoter activity while leaving the FAR1 gene fully intact. In another experiment, we used PCR duplication to increase the...

Data from: Taming the wild: resolving the gene pools of non-model Arabidopsis lineages

Background: Wild relatives in the genus Arabidopsis are recognized as useful model systems to study traits and evolutionary processes in outcrossing species, which are often difficult or even impossible to investigate in the selfing and annual Arabidopsis thaliana. However, Arabidopsis as a genus is littered with sub-species and ecotypes which make realizing the potential of these non-model Arabidopsis lineages problematic. There are relatively few evolutionary studies which comprehensively characterize the gene pools across all of...
