The Arabidopsis lyrata genome sequence and the basis of rapid genome size change.
Gene pool sequencing of serpentine and granitic populations of Arabidopsis lyrata from the USA shows that the polymorphisms that are most strongly associated with soil type are loci for heavy-metal detoxification and calcium and magnesium transport, providing several candidate loci for serpentine adaptation (Turner et al., 2010), including CAX7, which appears to be responsible for adaptation to low calcium to magnesium ratios characteristic of serpentine soils (Turner et al., 2008).
