I apologize for my bad English:
This article intrigued me,
reading the Bible tells of the garden of Eden a place where Biblical Elohim cultivate all kinds of edible plants. It is curious how, just where the
gods had their garden, they were born impossible plants from a genetic point of view, but they fed millions of people.
Here is a part of the translated article:
The birth of a new species
About 8,000 / 9,000 years ago, in the region between Armenia and the southwest of the Caspian Sea, there was a second “impossible” genetic event: the
T.dicoccum completely encompassed the genome of another herbaceous plant, the Aegilops tauschii, To create the Triticum spelta, or spelled
sprout.Once, although the details are still to be defined, a number of further genetic modifications have brought to our beloved Triticum aestivum:
the tender wheat with which we make bread and pizza. It has been Precisely the genus donated by A.tauschii to improve the brewing quality of common
wheat flour, and also allowed the cultivation in colder climates and further north, so much so that even today the best common wheat comes from cold
Common wheat is an esaploidy, that is, six copies of each chromosome, coming from the three different species that generated it.
Try thinking about what it means to have six copies of each chromosome, it’s as if we (diploid) instead of having 46 of them have three times as much,
that is, 138: we would be monsters. While soft wheat does not seem to suffer particularly from the genetic abnormality .
Common wheat therefore, unlike durum wheat, does not have a wild direct correspondent and therefore has a very small biodiversity. With its 95,000
genes and triple the number of chromosomes of the two wild species of Triticum from which it all started, Is a true genetic monster, somewhat
sympathetic, like those of Monsters & Co, which in its evolution has, with unmatched “against nature”, whole genomes of plants not only of different
species but also of different genres.
