In this paper, we show that NLR immune receptors with new fusions are distributed unevenly across the NLR phylogeny forming evolutionary hotspots. We also examine microsynteny and observe that NLR-IDs in grasses often form pairs with genetically linked NLRs from another clade, analogous to the RPS4/RRS1 pair in Arabidopsis.

Genome Res. 2017 May;27(5):885-896 (first on BioRxiv)

Our contribution to this paper included anchoring the wheat assembly to the genetic map, analysis of protein gene families and uncovering large scale translocations

In this paper, we show that plant NLR immune receptors with integrated domains (NLR-IDs) are present across flowering plants and include variety of new protein fusions that hint at plant proteins targeted by pathogens and guarded by the immune system.
