Microstructural Changes in Noncoding Chloroplast DNA: Interpretation, Evolution, and Utility of Indels and Inversions in Basal Angiosperm Phylogenetic InferenceDownload
Microstructural changes in several very slowly evolving chloroplast introns and intergenic spacers were characterized across a broad range of angiosperms, including most of the major basal lineages. Insertion/ deletion events (indels) in the surveyed noncoding regions of the large inverted repeat...
Sequences from 14 slowly evolving chloroplast genes (including three highly conserved introns) were obtained for representative basal angiosperm and seed-plant taxa, using novel primers described here. These data were combined with published sequences from atpB, rbcL, and newly obtained sequences...
