As the largest and the basal-most family of conifers, Pinaceae provides key insights into the evolutionary history of conifers. We present comparative chloroplast genomics and analysis of concatenated 49 chloroplast protein-coding genes common to 19 gymnosperms, including 15 species from 8 Pinaceous genera, to address the long-standing controversy about Pinaceae phylogeny. The complete cpDNAs of Cathaya argyrophylla and Cedrus deodara (Abitoideae) and draft cpDNAs of Larix decidua, Picea… Expand
Phylogeny and evolutionary history of Pinaceae updated by transcriptomic analysis.
TLDR
Based on molecular dating, extant Pinaceae genera diverged since about 206 Mya, earlier than the break-up of Pangea, and the divergence among the pinoid genera occurred early than the split among the abietoids genera. Expand
Comparative Chloroplast Genomes of Pinaceae: Insights into the Mechanism of Diversified Genomic Organizations
TLDR
It is proposed that in the Pinaceae cpDNAs, the reduced IRs have lost HR activity, then decreasing the diversity of cpDNA organizations, but the specific repeats that the evolution endowed Pinaceae complement the reducedIRs and increase the Diversity of cp DNA organizations. Expand
Revisiting the Plastid Phylogenomics of Pinaceae with Two Complete Plastomes of Pseudolarix and Tsuga
TLDR
From the 65 plastid protein-coding genes common to all Pinaceous genera, the phylogenetic relationship among all Pinassic genera is re-examined and a unique insertion of tandem repeats in accD of T. chinensis is reported. Expand
Three genome-based phylogeny of Cupressaceae s.l.: further evidence for the evolution of gymnosperms and Southern Hemisphere biogeography.
TLDR
Two single-copy nuclear genes are used, together with chloroplast and mitochondrial genes, to reconstruct the phylogeny of the ecologically-important conifer family Cupressaceae s.l., based on a complete sampling of its 32 genera, and the biogeographic history of Cupressus, Fitzroya and Sequoia is found.

The Complete Plastome Sequences of Eleven Capsicum Genotypes: Insights into DNA Variation and Molecular Evolution
TLDR
Divergence and positive selection analyses unveiled that protein-coding genes were generally well conserved, but 25 positive signatures distributed in six genes involved in different essential plastid functions were identified, suggesting positive selection during evolution of Capsicum plastomes. Expand
A new phylogeny for the genus Picea from plastid, mitochondrial, and nuclear sequences.
TLDR
The large effective population sizes of spruces, and incomplete lineage sorting during speciation, mean that the interspecific relationships within each of the geographic clades require further studies, especially based on genomic information and population genetic data. Expand
Resolving phylogenetic relationships and species delimitations in closely related gymnosperms using high-throughput NGS, Sanger sequencing and morphology
TLDR
Internal nodes in the Chinese lianoid Gnetum clade are from the Miocene and onwards and coincide with the expansion of tropical to subtropical forests in South China, which may have facilitated speciation in the clade. Expand
Loss of Different Inverted Repeat Copies from the Chloroplast Genomes of Pinaceae and Cupressophytes and Influence of Heterotachy on the Evaluation of Gymnosperm Phylogeny
TLDR
Based on a structural finding, the character of an IR loss no longer conflicts with the “gnepines” hypothesis (gnetophytes sister to Pinaceae), and chloroplast phylogenomic analyses of amino acid sequences recovered incongruent topologies using different tree-building methods; however, it was demonstrated that high heterotachous genes contributed to the long-branch attraction (LBA) artifact, resulting inincongruence of phylogenomic estimates. Expand
Phylogeny and Divergence Times of Gymnosperms Inferred from Single-Copy Nuclear Genes
TLDR
This study uses LFY and NLY, two single-copy nuclear genes that originated from an ancient gene duplication in the ancestor of seed plants, to reconstruct the phylogeny and estimate divergence times of gymnosperms based on a complete sampling of extant genera and strongly supports cycads as the basal-most lineage of Gymnosperms rather than sister to Ginkgoaceae.
