A DNA barcode for land plants
DNA barcoding involves sequencing a standard region of DNA as a tool for species identification. However, there has been no agreement on which region(s) should be used for barcoding land plants. ToExpand

Choosing and Using a Plant DNA Barcode
The main aim of DNA barcoding is to establish a shared community resource of DNA sequences that can be used for organismal identification and taxonomic clarification. This approach was successfullyExpand

Phylotranscriptomic analysis of the origin and early diversification of land plants
Significance Early branching events in the diversification of land plants and closely related algal lineages remain fundamental and unresolved questions in plant evolutionary biology. AccurateExpand

Multiple Multilocus DNA Barcodes from the Plastid Genome Discriminate Plant Species Equally Well
A universal barcode system for land plants would be a valuable resource, with potential utility in fields as diverse as ecology, floristics, law enforcement and industry. However, the application ofExpand

Are plant species inherently harder to discriminate than animal species using DNA barcoding markers?
The ability to discriminate between species using barcoding loci has proved more difficult in plants than animals, raising the possibility that plant species boundaries are less well defined. Here,Expand

Microstructural Changes in Noncoding Chloroplast DNA: Interpretation, Evolution, and Utility of Indels and Inversions in Basal Angiosperm Phylogenetic Inference
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.Expand

Hydatellaceae identified as a new branch near the base of the angiosperm phylogenetic tree
Although the relationship of angiosperms to other seed plants remains controversial, great progress has been made in identifying the earliest extant splits in flowering-plant phylogeny, with theExpand

Early genome duplications in conifers and other seed plants
A new phylogenomic approach reveals that conifer genomes are duplicated despite rare polyploidy among extant species. Polyploidy is a common mode of speciation and evolution in angiosperms (floweringExpand

Data access for the 1,000 Plants (1KP) project
The 1,000 plants (1KP) project is an international multi-disciplinary consortium that has generated transcriptome data from over1,000 plant species, with exemplars for all of the major lineages across the Viridiplantae (green plants) clade. Expand

Utility of 17 chloroplast genes for inferring the phylogeny of the basal angiosperms.
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 describedExpand
