The importance of Poales species; which includes rice, wheat, and maize; has led to various studies on its tolerance and evolution. Evolutionary studies are largely dependent on the presence of orthologs. A recent study suggests that the complete set of orthologs is required to reflect actual evolutionary history; thereby, underpinning the need to identify the core genome of Poales representing the set of orthologs across Poales species. Here, we identified a 6,122 gene core genome of Poales and functional analysis suggests that a strong role of interspecies interactions within Poales core genome.
