Plastid-to-nucleus DNA transfer provides a rich genetic resource to the complexity of plant nuclear genome architecture. To date, the evolutionary route of nuclear plastid DNA (nupt) remain unknown in conifers. We have sequenced the complete plastomes of two yews, Amentotaxus formosana and Taxus mairei (Taxaceae of coniferales). Our comparative genomic analyses recovered an evolutionary scenario for plastomic reorganization from ancestral to extant plastomes in the three sampled Taxaceae genera… Expand
Massive intracellular gene transfer during plastid genome reduction in nongreen Orobanchaceae.
TLDR
The analyses indicate that the first functional gene losses occurred within 10 Myr of the transition to obligate parasitism in Orobanchaceae, and that the physical plastome reduction proceeds by small deletions that accumulate over time. Expand
History of Plastid DNA Insertions Reveals Weak Deletion and AT Mutation Biases in Angiosperm Mitochondrial Genomes
TLDR
The evolution of mtpt sequences reveals a pattern of biased mutational input in angiosperm mitochondrial genomes, including an excess of small deletions over insertions and a skew toward nucleotide substitutions that increase AT content. Expand
Comparative Genomic Analysis Reveals the Mechanism Driving the Diversification of Plastomic Structure in Taxaceae Species
TLDR
A distinct pattern and the mechanism driving the structural diversification of Taxaceae plastomes are revealed, which will advance the understanding of the maintenance of plastomic diversity and complexity in conifers. Expand
Birth of Four Chimeric Plastid Gene Clusters in Japanese Umbrella Pine
TLDR
It is shown that plastomic inversions in Sciadopitys have led to shuffling of the remote conserved operons, resulting in the birth of four chimeric gene clusters, and it is demonstrated that the relocated genes can be co-transcribed in these chimeric genes clusters. Expand
Comparative chloroplast genomics of the genus Taxodium
TLDR
New evidence is added for the role of repeats in the dynamics mechanism of cp genome mutation and rearrangement and the information of TRs and hypervariable regions would provide reliable molecular resources for future research focusing on the infrageneric taxa identification, phylogenetic resolution, population structure and biodiversity for the genus Taxodium and Cupressophytes. Expand
Evolution of Gymnosperm Plastid Genomes
TLDR
This chapter summarizes the progression of plastome availability on GenBank and discusses potential causes for the variation in gymnosperms, and reviews the use of these plastomes for resolving long-standing issues in seed plant and gymnosperm phylogenies. Expand
Plastome phylogenomic analysis of Torreya (Taxaceae)
TLDR
Phylogenetic inference using a maximum likelihood framework resolved Torreya as a monophyletic clade and strong supported relationships within the genus include the position of the early diverging T. jackii Chun, the two sister pairs T. and T. grandis Fortune ex Lindl.–T. Expand
Evolutionary Stasis in Cycad Plastomes and the First Case of Plastome GC-Biased Gene Conversion
TLDR
This study is the first to uncover the plastomic gB GC in seed plants and proposes a gBGC model to interpret the dissimilar evolutionary patterns as well as the compositionally biased mutations in the SC and IR regions of cycad plastomes. Expand
Prevalence of isomeric plastomes and effectiveness of plastome super-barcodes in yews (Taxus) worldwide
TLDR
It is demonstrated that entire plastomes can be used to successfully discriminate all Taxus species with 100% support, suggesting that they are useful as super-barcodes for species identification and it is proposed that accD and rrn16-rrn23 are promising special barcodes to discriminate yew species.

The Complete Chloroplast Genome Sequence of a Relict Conifer Glyptostrobus pensilis: Comparative Analysis and Insights into Dynamics of Chloroplast Genome Rearrangement in Cupressophytes and Pinaceae
TLDR
Through phylogenetic analysis, it is demonstrated that the genus Glyptostrobus is closely related to the genus Cryptomeria, supporting previous findings based on physiological characteristics and identifying 170 perfect simple sequence repeats that will be useful in future research focusing on the evolution of genetic diversity and conservation of genetic variation for this endangered species in the wild.

Conservation of Plastid Sequences in the Plant Nuclear Genome for Millions of Years Facilitates Endosymbiotic Evolution1[W][OA]
TLDR
The results suggest that chloroplast genes transferred to the nucleus have in some cases several millions of years to acquire nuclear regulatory elements and become functional. Expand
Extreme reconfiguration of plastid genomes in the angiosperm family Geraniaceae: rearrangements, repeats, and codon usage.
TLDR
Geraniaceae plastid genomes were sequenced and compared with other rosids and the previously published Pelargonium hortorum plastome to propose that increases in genomic rearrangements, repetitive DNA, nucleotide substitutions, and GC content may be caused by relaxed selection resulting from improper DNA repair.

NUPTs in sequenced eukaryotes and their genomic organization in relation to NUMTs.
TLDR
An inventory of NUPTs in the four sequenced plastid-bearing species and their genomic organization is presented and it is suggested that tight and loose clusters represent intermediates of this decay process. Expand
Genes of cyanobacterial origin in plant nuclear genomes point to a heterocyst-forming plastid ancestor.
TLDR
The genome-wide frequency of gene acquisitions from cyanobacteria in 4 photosynthetic eukaryotes is reported, consistent with suggestions that fixed nitrogen supplied by the endosymbiont might have played an important role during the origin of plastids. Expand
Plastid Genomes of Seed Plants
TLDR
A robust phylogenetic estimate provides an evolutionary framework for examining patterns and rates of change in plastid genomes across angiosperms and suggests aberrant DNA repair mechanisms may be involved in destabilizing these plastids. Expand
Patterns of Genomic Integration of Nuclear Chloroplast DNA Fragments in Plant Species
TLDR
The age distributions suggested that the present genomic constitutions of NUPTs could be explained by the combination of the rapidly eliminated deleterious parts and few but constantly existing less deleteriously parts. Expand
Transfer of chloroplast genomic DNA to mitochondrial genome occurred at least 300 MYA.
TLDR
It is provided strong evidence that the cp-derived tRNA-trnM(cau) is the only mtpt truly transferred from cpDNA to mtDNA since the time of the common ancestor of extant gymnosperms and angiosperms. Expand
Horizontal Transfer of Entire Genomes via Mitochondrial Fusion in the Angiosperm Amborella
TLDR
A fusion-compatibility model is proposed to explain the findings, with Amborella capturing whole mitochondria from diverse eukaryotes, followed by mitochondrial fusion (limited mechanistically to green plant mitochondria) and then genome recombination. Expand
Correlation between Nuclear Plastid DNA Abundance and Plastid Number Supports the Limited Transfer Window Hypothesis
TLDR
Analysis of newly available genome sequences from diverse mono- and polyplastidic taxa shows that the limited transfer window hypothesis holds, and NUPT content was positively related to nuclear genome size, indicating that in addition to plastid number, NUPTs are influenced by the forces controlling the expansion and contraction of noncoding nuclear DNA.
