Abstract

The goal of this project is to evaluate the efficacy of hybridization-based DNA enrichment over a wide phylogenetic range. Hybridization-based enrichment uses RNA probes to identify and extract multiple regions of interest from sampled DNA. In the case of this study, the regions of interest are the nuclear genomes of several groups of gypsum endemic plants. Baits are traditionally designed from and for the genome of a single species. I will use baits to enrich the nuclear genomes of species closely and distantly related to the bait source species. I will then use this data to analyze the effect of phylogenetic distance between bait source and target species on the efficacy enrichment.
