Plant evolutionary biologists from the Department of Botany (Roswitha Schmickl and Magdalena Bohutínská), together with collaborators from the United Kingdom (John Innes Centre and the Universities of Nottingham, Leicester and Cambridge), found an intriguing role of introgressive hybridisation in adaptation to whole genome duplication (WGD).

The paper was recently published in Nature Communications.
