Genes responsible for difference in flower color of snapdragons identified

Snapdragons are tall plants, and flower in a range of colors. In Spain, where snapdragons grow wild, these flower colors show a remarkable pattern: areas of magenta and yellow blooming flowers are separated by just a two kilometer long stretch in which flower colors mix. Scientists have investigated the causes of this pattern and identified the genes responsible for flower color difference from DNA sequence data. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/10/181008183355.htm
