Eucalypt chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) provides useful markers for phylogenetic and population research including gene flow and maternity studies. All cpDNA studies in Eucalyptus to date have been based on the RFLP technique, which requires relatively large amounts of clean DNA. The objective of this study was to develop PCR-based cpDNA markers for Eucalyptus. The chloroplast genome of Eucalyptus, like that of most angiosperms, possesses inverted repeats (IR). The two junctions between the IRs and… CONTINUE READING
