AbstractDOF, DNA binding with one finger proteins are plant-specific transcription factors shown to play roles in diverse plant functions. However, a—little is known about DOF protein repertoire of the allopolyploid crop, Brassica napus. Here, we report genome-wide identification and systematic analysis of the Dof transcription factor family in this important oilseed crop. We identified 117 Brassica napus Dof genes (BnaDofs). So far, this is the largest number of Dof genes reported in a single eudicot species. Based on phylogenetic analysis, BnaDofs were classified into nine groups (A, B1, B2. C1, C2.1, C2.2, C3, D1, D2). Most members belonging to a particular group displayed conserved gene ..
