The Genlisea-Utricularia clade exhibits one of the highest mutational rates in several genomic regions in angiosperms, what may be linked to specialized patterns of genome evolution.

A phylogenetic analysis of Chenopodiaceae and Amaranthaceae using sequence variation of the chloroplast gene rbcL indicates that the two families form a well‐supported monophyletic clade that is sister to Achatocarpaceae.

A phylogeny for basal angiosperms based on noncoding, fast‐evolving sequences of the chloroplast genome region trnT‐trnF is presented, showing the New Caledonian Amborella as the sister to all other angios perms, followed by Nymphaeaceae and an Austrobaileya–Illicium–Schisandra clade.
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.
MULTIGENE ANALYSES OF MONOCOT RELATIONSHIPS : A SUMMARY
Analysis of supra-familial relationships of monocots based on a combined matrix of nuclear ISS and partial 26S rONA, plastid atpB, matK, ndhF, and rbcL, and mitochondrial atpl DNA sequences provides higher bootstrap support for nearly all relationships than in previously published analyses.
Multigene Analyses of Monocot Relationships
Analysis of supra-familial relationships of monocots based on a combined matrix of nuclear 18S and partial 26S rDNA, plastid atpB, matK, ndhF, and rbcL, and mitochondrial atpl DNA sequences provides higher bootstrap support for nearly all relationships than in previously published analyses.
Evolution of Piperales--matK gene and trnK intron sequence data reveal lineage specific resolution contrast.

Phylogenetic relationships among 35 of an estimated 45–50 species of Nymphaea are presented based on an analysis of the chloroplast trnT‐trnF region, showing a strong insertion bias in simple sequence repeats and AT‐rich, satellite‐like sequence parts that seem to be conserved in sequence within species but are highly variable among species.

It is suggested that carnivory and its preliminary stages ("proto-carnivores") independently evolved more than once among Lamiales, thereby hinting at a marked degree of carnivory in these two genera.
Phylogenetics of amaranthaceae based on matK/trnK sequence data-evidence from parsimony, likelihood, and bayesian analyses
Amaranthaceae and Chenopodiaceae together represent the most species-rich monophyletic group in the angiosperm order Caryophyllales and the complex stellate pore ornamentation was reconstructed as having evolved at least twice in parallel.
