    I'd choose the Sarracenia rubras and their endangered upland siblings. Where and what are the ancestors they evolved from. Oops, I didn't mean for another 55 page thread to start here too.

    For me it would be Drosera, dude - but not droseradude! Sorry Matt, couldn't resist a bad pun! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    HA! Live and learn! Didn't know that.....knew it of VFT's, but not neps.

    I might like to do a comparitive study of two different genus... like helis and sars. or vft's and aldrovanda.

    There are millions of different things you could do with a genome sequence (why do you think the human genome project was undertaken?!). For example you could study comparative evolution, identify novel proteins or genes, etc. Maybe we could refine this question to: what genome would you study and WHAT would you study? Myself: I would like to study several CP genomes, with the hope of maybe finding some novel gene clusters which synthesize small molecules. This could perhaps lead to new theraputic drugs: as many drugs come from plant sources, and CPs are novel plants, perhaps novel drugs are hiding in there genomes waiting to be revealed. Hmm, I work here in biochemistry lab at Harvard, they got lots of money and equipment, maybe I could undertake a 'secret' side project...hmmmm [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    I would choose sarracenia, just because they continually surprise me

    How about studying droseras like burmanii and sessiliflora (sp?) or capillaris and sphatulata [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    I would pick Pinguicula, Utricularia, Genlisea and Pygmy Drosera.

    Drosera Rotundifolia so I could isolate the genes that allow it to be cold hardy so I could implant these genes in other closely related genus's like Dinaea.
