First insights into fern matK phylogeny.
MatK, the only maturase gene in the land plant plastid genome, is a very popular phylogenetic marker that has been extensively applied in reconstructing angiosperm phylogeny. However, the use of matKExpand

Green plants (Viridiplantae) include around 450,000–500,000 species1,2 of great diversity and have important roles in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Here, as part of the One Thousand PlantExpand
Refugia and phylogeography of Taiwania in East Asia
Aim  The East Asia endemic Taiwania cryptomerioides Hayata is an iconic and relictual monotypic conifer whose main extant populations are now restricted to the Yunnan–Myanmar border, northern VietnamExpand
Flower development of Phalaenopsis orchid involves functionally divergent SEPALLATA-like genes
The Phalaenopsis orchid produces complex flowers that are commercially valuable, which has promoted the study of its flower development. E-class MADS-box genes, SEPALLATA (SEP), combined with B-, C-Expand
Phylogenetic Position of Titanotrichum oldhamii (Gesneriaceae) Inferred From Four Different Gene Regions
Abstract Titanotrichum oldhamii has been variously placed in Gesneriaceae or Scrophulariaceae, although most recent taxonomic treatments treat it as a monotypic tribe within Gesneriaceae. In thisExpand
Molecular population genetics and gene expression analysis of duplicated CBF genes of Arabidopsis thaliana
BackgroundCBF/DREB duplicate genes are widely distributed in higher plants and encode transcriptional factors, or CBFs, which bind a DNA regulatory element and impart responsiveness to lowExpand
MicroRNA396-Targeted SHORT VEGETATIVE PHASE Is Required to Repress Flowering and Is Related to the Development of Abnormal Flower Symptoms by the Phyllody Symptoms1 Effector1
A PHYL1 effector protein interferes with miR396-mediated transcriptional regulator mRNA decay, enhancing the transcription factor for abnormal flower development. Leafy flowers are the major symptomsExpand
Altered expression of GFLO, the Gesneriaceae homologue of FLORICAULA/LEAFY, is associated with the transition to bulbil formation in Titanotrichum oldhamii
Titanotrichum oldhamii inflorescences switch from flower to bulbil production at the end of the flowering season. The structure of the bulbiliferous shoots resembles the abnormal meristematicExpand
Integrating a comprehensive DNA barcode reference library with a global map of yews (Taxus L.) for forensic identification
Rapid and accurate identification of endangered species is a critical component of biosurveillance and conservation management, and potentially policing illegal trades. However, this is often notExpand
A complex case of simple leaves: indeterminate leaves co-express ARP and KNOX1 genes
The mutually exclusive relationship between ARP and KNOX1 genes in the shoot apical meristem and leaf primordia in simple leaved plants such as Arabidopsis has been well characterized. OverlappingExpand
