Abstract : Because of their prominent roles in plant development, transcription factors (TF) play central roles as drivers of innovation in the evolution of the green lineage (viridiplantae). The advent of massive sequencing combined with comparative genetics/genomics allows a rigorous investigation of how TF families have contributed to plant diversification from charophyte algae to bryophytes to angiosperms. Here, we review recent progress on TF family reconstruction and the identification of distantly related TFs present throughout the evolutionary timeline from algae to angiosperms. These data provide examples of contrasting evolutionary trajectories of TF families and illustrate how conserved TFs adopt diverse roles over the course of evolution.
