One of Darwin’s mysteries may have been solved thanks to the sequenced genome of the Amborella plant. Scientists have discovered why flowers suddenly proliferated on Earth millions of years ago.

Pamela D Lloyd‘s insight:

We are learning so much about our world and how it has developed through the study of genomics, as indicated by researcher Brad Barbazuk’s comment on the sequencing of the Amborella plant, "This work provides the first global insight as to how flowering plants are genetically different from all other plants on Earth."
