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
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.

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.
The large single-copy (LSC) region functions as a highly effective and efficient molecular marker for accurate authentication of medicinal Dendrobium species

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…
Accurate authentication of Dendrobium officinale and its closely related species by comparative analysis of complete plastomes
Comparative Analysis of the Complete Plastomes of Apostasia wallichii and Neuwiedia singapureana (Apostasioideae) Reveals Different Evolutionary Dynamics of IR/SSC Boundary among Photosynthetic…
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.
