Marchantia polymorpha (hereafter referred to as Marchantia) is a liverwort, one of the three lineages of bryophytes that colonized the land and radiated over the continental surfaces over 400 million years ago. Due to the long evolutionary history of Marchantia, there are considerable genetic differences between different populations around the world. I am studying the genetic variation in Marchantia using genome-wide association (GWA) to generate novel insights into the evolution of land plants.
