Understanding the spectacular failure of DNA barcoding in willows (Salix): Does this result from a trans‐specific selective sweep?
Willows (Salix: Salicaceae) form a major ecological component of Holarctic floras and consequently are an obvious target for a DNA‐based identification system. We surveyed two to seven plastid genomeExpand

High intraindividual variation in internal transcibed spacer sequences in Aeschynanthus (Gesneriaceae): implications for phylogenetics
Aeschynanthus (Gesneriaceae) is a large genus of tropical epiphytes that is widely distributed from the Himalayas and China throughout South–East Asia to New Guinea and the Solomon Islands.Expand

EVOLUTION OF MORPHOLOGICAL NOVELTY: A PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF GROWTH PATTERNS IN STREPTOCARPUS (GESNERIACEAE)
Abstract.— Streptocarpus shows great variation in vegetative architecture. In some species a normal shoot apical meristem never forms and the entire vegetative plant body may consist of a singleExpand

aTRAM - automated target restricted assembly method: a fast method for assembling loci across divergent taxa from next-generation sequencing data
TLDR
A software that rapidly assembles genes of interest from short paired-end sequencing reads, even across divergent taxa by iteratively querying and assembling reads. Expand

The hooded mutant of Lathyrus odoratus (Fabaceae) is associated with a cycloidea gene mutation
The hooded (hdd) floral mutant of Lathyrus odoratus L. (sweet pea) has a concave standard petal compared with the flat standard petal of the wild type. This trait was used by Bateson, Punnett, andExpand

Cell-context signalling.
In plants, cells differentiate according to their position with relation to their cell neighbours. Monoclonal antibody (MAb) probes to polysaccharide epitopes, present at the surfaces of all plantExpand

Evolution and alignment of the hypervariable arm 1 of Aeschynanthus (Gesneriaceae) ITS2 nuclear ribosomal DNA.
Comparative ITS2 sequencing in the plant genus Aeschynanthus(Gesneriaceae) reveals an insertion/deletion (indel) hot spot in the ITS2 sequences that is difficult to align. Examination of otherExpand
