Pigment-regulating small siRNAs from YUP locus are responsible for speciation of monkeyflowers

It has always been of interest to the plant community to understand the mechanisms behind the evolution of diverse floral carotenoid pigmentation within a genus. In this paper, Liang et al. investigated the mechanism behind monkeyflowers (Mimulus spp.) speciation driven by the flower color locus, YELLOW UPPER (YUP). YUP has been shown to control the […]
