However, it is certain that the evolution of hexaploid oats, whether through allopolyploidy (merging of different oat genomes) or autopolyploidy (duplication of existing oat genomes) or a combination of both, required the existence of two genomes (tetraploid) prior to addition of another genome (diploid) in a common nucleus. The advantage of an additional genome had to be immediate for this new species to survive and this advantage had to be a product of altered “tetraploid” gene expression. In this study, we compared transcriptomes of diploid oat, tetraploid oat and a merged diploid/tetraploid in a synthetic hexaploid oat to elucidate genome interactions and alterations to gene expression. Briefly, a synthetic hexaploid oat, ASASCCDDM (2n=42), was previously generated by hybridization of Avena strigosa diploid oat, ASAS (2n=14), and Avena magna tetraploid oat, CCDDM (2n=28), in Gideon Ladizinsky's oat genetics program. RNA was extracted from immature seed embryos and each transcriptome was assembled de novo using RNA-Seq. We will discuss gene expression, gene silencing and derepression, and present possible underlying mechanisms of this phenomenon.

    Our study showed that newly synthesized hexaploid, with 39497 gene candidates, maintained a similar transcriptome, about 80%, as combined Avena magna and Avena strigosa transcriptomes, with 49983 gene candidates. This suggests that diploid and tetraploid genomes mostly conserved their gene expression after merging into a new hexaploid state. Interestingly, the similarity of transcriptomes between evolved oat genome (Leggett) and newly merged hexaploid is also about 80%.This leaves 20% of transcriptome differences to be explained by either directed genetic or epigenetic changes. Current thought is that the genetic and epigenetic repatterning of transcriptome is programmed rather than a chaotic response to the new merger, suggesting allopolyploidy being sensed by cell machinery and triggering a complex but methodical cellular response, which is observed in transcriptome changes.
