Angiosperm phylogeny based on matK sequence information.
Combined analyses of matK and other rapidly evolving DNA regions with available multigene data sets have strong potential to enhance resolution and internal support in deep level angiosperms phylogenetics and provide additional insights into angiosperm evolution.

Toward a Phylogenetic Classification of the Lauraceae: Evidence from matK Sequences
- J. Rohwer
The separation between taxa with involucrate and non-involucrate inflorescences, which had been one of the basic subdivisions in all systems of the Lauraceae so far, is not supported and there seems to be an early division into a Gondwanan group and a Laurasian–South American group.
Evidence for radiations of cheilanthoid ferns in the Greater Cape Floristic Region
Jumping genera: the phylogenetic positions of Cassytha, Hypodaphnis, and Neocinnamomum (Lauraceae) based on different analyses of trnK intron sequences
The phytogeny of the Lauraceae is re-examined with an enlarged data set from the trnK intron, including a higher number of critical taxa and a larger number of coding(matK) and non-coding sequence positions, and Bayesian inference yields results that are more consistent with the distribution of informative indels than the results of parsimony analyses.

It is suggested that the Persea group originated from the Perseeae-Laureae radiation in early Eocene Laurasia and can be retained as a genus by the inclusion of Apollonias barbujana and exclusion a few species that do not fit into the established subgenera.
Is Persea (Lauraceae) monophyletic? Evidence from nuclear ribosomal ITS sequences
ITS sequences of 61 species of the Persea group (Lauraceae) and 30 other species of Lauraceae indicate that Persea, as currently circumscribed, is not monophyletic.
Monoclonal anti-equine IgE antibodies with specificity for different epitopes on the immunoglobulin heavy chain of native IgE.
Origins and evolution of cinnamon and camphor: A phylogenetic and historical biogeographical analysis of the Cinnamomum group (Lauraceae).
Towards a phylogenetic classification of the Ocotea complex (Lauraceae): an analysis with emphasis on the Old World taxa and description of the new genus Kuloa
A phylogenetic analysis based on ITS and psbA-trnH sequences of 168 Lauraceae species, including 151 taxa from the Ocotea complex, shows that the Old World species belong to two well-supported and morphologically distinguishable clades, one of which is placed unresolved among the Neotropical clades of the Odyssey complex.
