Evolution of Red Algal Plastid Genomes: Ancient Architectures, Introns, Horizontal Gene Transfer, and Taxonomic Utility of Plastid Markers
TLDR
Red algal plastid genomes are easily obtainable using high-throughput sequencing of total genomic DNA, interesting from evolutionary perspectives, and promising in resolving red algal relationships at evolutionarily-deep and species/subspecies levels.
Organ and Cell Type–Specific Complementary Expression Patterns and Regulatory Neofunctionalization between Duplicated Genes in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
The evolutionary importance of reciprocal expression patterns between gene duplicates is indicated, showing that they are common, often associated with regulatory neofunctionalization, and may be a factor allowing for retention and divergence of duplicated genes.
Comparative analysis of structural diversity and sequence evolution in plant mitochondrial genes transferred to the nucleus.
TLDR
A detailed portrayal of structural and sequence evolution in mitochondrial genes transferred to the nucleus is provided, revealing the frequency of different mechanisms for how presequences and introns are acquired and showing how the sequences of transferred genes evolve after movement between cellular genomes.
Comparative genomics of parasitic silkworm microsporidia reveal an association between genome expansion and host adaptation
TLDR
It is demonstrated for the first time that the parasitic genomes can expand, instead of shrink, through several common molecular mechanisms such as gene duplication, horizontal gene transfer, and transposable element expansion.
Phylogeny, species diversity and biogeographic patterns of the genus Tricleocarpa (Galaxauraceae, Rhodophyta) from the Indo-Pacific region, including T. confertus sp. nov. from Taiwan
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny of Tricleocarpa with an emphasis on Taiwan species and reassessed species diversity of the genus from the Indo-Pacific region based on analyses of rbcL and COI-5P sequences and morphological observations supported a trend that species in the T. fragilis group are restricted in their distribution to subtropical and tropical areas whereas species inThe cylindrica group have a wide distribution, ranging from temperate through to tropical areas.
SYSTEMATICS OF THE CALCIFIED GENERA OF THE GALAXAURACEAE (NEMALIALES, RHODOPHYTA) WITH AN EMPHASIS ON TAIWAN SPECIES 1
TLDR
Molecular data do not support monophyly for the putatively pantropical species Galaxaura rugosa, Dichotomaria obtusata, and D. marginata, all of which are concluded are in need of taxonomic revision.
Duplications and Turnover in Plant Genomes
TLDR
An overview of how duplication-driven genomic turn-over has influenced the evolution and diversity of plant genomes is provided.
Frequent Changes in Expression Profile and Accelerated Sequence Evolution of Duplicated Imprinted Genes in Arabidopsis
TLDR
It is found that 125 imprinted genes in Arabidopsis arose from gene duplication events during the evolution of the Brassicales and that many of them show changes in expression profiles and accelerated sequence evolution.
Contrasting patterns of genetic structure and phylogeography in the marine agarophytes Gelidiophycus divaricatus and G. freshwateri (Gelidiales, Rhodophyta) from East Asia
TLDR
The results illustrate that Quaternary climate oscillations have left strong imprints on the current day genetic structure and highlight the importance of seawater temperature and sea level change in driving speciation in upper intertidal seaweed species.
A phylogenetic re‐appraisal of the family Liagoraceae sensu lato (Nemaliales, Rhodophyta) based on sequence analyses of two plastid genes and postfertilization development
The marine red algal family Liagoraceae sensu lato is shown to be polyphyletic based on analyses of a combined rbcL and psaA data set and the pattern of carposporophyte development. Fifteen of
