The two cultivated allopolyploid cottons, Gossypium hirsutum and G. barbadense, represent a remarkable example of parallel independent domestication, both involving dramatic morphological transformations under selection from wild perennial plants to annualized row crops. We combine deep resequencing of 643 newly sampled accessions spanning the wild-todomesticated continuum of both species, and their allopolyploid relatives, with existing data to ... [more]
