Comparison of the evolution of ribulose-1, 5-biphosphate carboxylase (rbcL) and atpB-rbcL noncoding spacer sequences in a recent plant group, the tribe Rubieae (Rubiaceae)


Plastid sequences of the atpB-rbcL spacer and rbcL gene itself were used to evaluate their respective potential in reconstructing the phylogeny of 15 taxa from the tribe Rubieae (Rubiaceae). From our previous analyses using the atpB-rbcL spacer, the 15 selected taxa represent most of the variability of the tribe. Since this group is considered to be… (More)
