The Complete Plastome Sequences of Four Orchid Species: Insights into the Evolution of the Orchidaceae and the Utility of Plastomic Mutational Hotspots
Orchidaceae (orchids) is the largest family in the monocots, including about 25,000 species in 880 genera and five subfamilies. Many orchids are highly valued for their beautiful and long-lasting
Comparative Chloroplast Genomes of Photosynthetic Orchids: Insights into Evolution of the Orchidaceae and Development of Molecular Markers for Phylogenetic Applications
TLDR
The complete chloroplast genomes of the medicinal plant Dendrobium officinale and the ornamental orchid Cypripedium macranthos are reported, demonstrating their gene content and order and potential RNA editing sites, and fifteen highly divergent protein-coding genes were identified, which are useful for phylogenetic analyses in orchids.
Mutational Biases and GC-Biased Gene Conversion Affect GC Content in the Plastomes of Dendrobium Genus
TLDR
It is suggested that both mutational biases and gBGC affect GC content in the plastomes of Dendrobium genus, which is one of the largest genera in the orchid species.
Iteration expansion and regional evolution: phylogeography of Dendrobium officinale and four related taxa in southern China
TLDR
The phylogeographical structure of D. officinale revealed that core natural distribution regions might have served as its glacial refuges, and rapid radiation and genetic drift appeared to drive the species’ diversification.
The complete chloroplast genome sequence of Dendrobium nobile
Abstract The complete chloroplast (cp) genome sequence of Dendrobium nobile, an endangered and traditional Chinese medicine with important economic value, is presented in this article. The total
Comparative Analysis of the Complete Plastomes of Apostasia wallichii and Neuwiedia singapureana (Apostasioideae) Reveals Different Evolutionary Dynamics of IR/SSC Boundary among Photosynthetic
TLDR
The results revealed that plastid genes exhibited a variable evolution rate within and among different orchid genus, and it was suggested that the plastome-wide evolution of orchid species was disproportional.
Detecting adulteration of Dendrobium officinale by real‐time PCR coupled with ARMS
TLDR
The results indicate that the established system can be able to rapidly and unequivocally discriminate ‘Tiepi Fengdou’ from its adulterants.
