Capturing genes from (old) herbarium material

A series of blogs by the RBGE staff about using targeted enrichment to sequence herbarium material of the legume genus Inga up to 180 yrs old!  This powerful approach would provide a large number loci to test phylogenetic affinities and biogeographic patterns using (old) bryophyte specimens stored in herbaria. A recent paper on the topic:
