PREMISE OF THE STUDY We explored the phylogenetic utility of entire plastid DNA sequences in Daucus and compared the results with prior phylogenetic results using plastid and nuclear DNA sequences. METHODS We used Illumina sequencing to obtain full plastid sequences of 37 accessions of 20 Daucus taxa and outgroups, analyzed the data with phylogenetic methods, and examined evidence for mitochondrial DNA transfer to the plastid (DcMP). KEY RESULTS Our phylogenetic trees of the entire data set… 

Mitochondrial DNA Sequence Phylogeny of Daucus

It is concluded that mitochondrial sequences are generally poor phylogenetic markers, at least at the genus level, despite their utility in some other studies.

Plastid Phylogenomic Analysis of Tordylieae Tribe (Apiaceae, Apioideae)

Significant differences in the inverted repeat length and gene content are observed, accompanied by a complex picture of multiple JLA and JLB shifts, which have increased the knowledge on the range of plastome variability in Apiaceae.

Daucus: Taxonomy, Phylogeny, Distribution

The phylogenetic relationships among the species of Daucus and close relatives in the Apioideae have been clarified recently by a series of molecular studies using DNA sequences of the plastid genes rbcL and matK;Plastid introns rpl16, rps 16, rpoC1; nuclear ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS) sequences; andplastid DNA restriction sites.

Analyses of 202 plastid genomes elucidate the phylogeny of Solanum section Petota

The present plastid analysis discovered the same major clades as the nuclear data but with some substantial differences in topology within the clades.

Phylogenomic and evolutionary dynamics of inverted repeats across Angelica plastomes

The results further demonstrate the power of plastid phylogenomics in enhancing the phylogenetic reconstructions of complex genera and provide new insights into plastome evolution across Angelica L. species.

Extended studies of interspecific relationships in Daucus (Apiaceae) using DNA sequences from ten nuclear orthologues

The new combination Daucus junceus (Durieua juncea) is proposed for a neglected species endemic to the south-western Iberian Peninsula often referred to as D. pusillus and D. setifolius, and three lectotypes are also designated.

Using carrot centromeric repeats to study karyotype relationships in the genus Daucus (Apiaceae)

The chromosomal distribution of carrot centromeric repeats (CentDc) was explored by means of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and detailed karyomorphological analysis in 16 accessions and the presence of the CentDc repeats in the genomes of taxa belonging to both Daucus subclades and one outgroup species indicated the ancestral status of the repeat.

Plastid genomes reveal recurrent formation of allopolyploid Fragaria.

Fragaria cascadensis had at least four independent origins from parents with different plastomes, which are probably a result of range shift during the last glacial maximum and best explained by incomplete lineage sorting and/or hybridization.



Major clades within Apiaceae subfamily Apioideae as inferred by phylogenetic analysis of nrDNA ITS sequences

An ITS-based classification of the Apiaceae subfamily Apioideae is proposed that enables direct and precise references to specific groups and facilitates sampling and hypothesis testing in future systematic studies.

Complete plastid genome sequence of Daucus carota: Implications for biotechnology and phylogeny of angiosperms

The availability of the complete plastid genome sequence should facilitate improved transformation efficiency and foreign gene expression in carrot through utilization of endogenous flanking sequences and regulatory elements.

Unraveling the biogeographical history of Chrysobalanaceae from plastid genomes.

It is hypothesized that the rapid diversification of Chrysobalanaceae following the colonization of the Neotropics was triggered by habitat specialization during the complex geological and paleoclimatic history of theNeotropics.

De novo assembly of the carrot mitochondrial genome using next generation sequencing of whole genomic DNA provides first evidence of DNA transfer into an angiosperm plastid genome

A new aspect of intercompartmental genome interaction was reported providing the first evidence for DNA transfer into an angiosperm plastid genome.

This study shows that the extensive rearrangements in Campanulaceae plastid genomes include dozens of newly inserted protein-coding genes that likely originated from the nucleus, and may help bioengineers incorporate genes into plastids of other plants.

Against the traffic

Findings open interesting questions about the evolution of organellar genomes and mobile genetic elements and provide a useful plastid marker to phylogenetically delineate species relationships within the Scandiceae clade.

A tRNA gene mapping within the chloroplast rDNA cluster is differentially expressed during the development of Daucus carota.

Analysis of expression of the chloroplast rDNA cluster during somatic embryogenesis of Daucus carota and multiple transcription start sites have been identified upstream of the tRNA(Val) gene, indicating that developmental control mechanisms act on plastid gene expression during embryogenesis in carrot.

A high-quality carrot genome assembly provides new insights into carotenoid accumulation and asterid genome evolution

A high-quality chromosome-scale assembly and analysis of the carrot genome is reported, the first sequenced genome to include a comparative evolutionary analysis among members of the euasterid II clade, and a candidate gene, DCAR_032551, is identified that conditions carotenoid accumulation (Y) in carrot taproot and is coexpressed with several isoprenoid biosynthetic genes.

Rates of nucleotide substitution vary greatly among plant mitochondrial, chloroplast, and nuclear DNAs.

The rate of cpDNA evolution appears to have slowed in some dicot lineages following the monocot/dicot split, and the slowdown is more conspicuous at nonsynonymous sites than at synonymous sites.

PRICE: Software for the Targeted Assembly of Components of (Meta) Genomic Sequence Data

The assembly strategy implemented by PRICE is described and examples of its application to the sequence of particular genes, transcripts, and virus genomes from complex multicomponent datasets, including an assembly of the BCBL-1 strain of Kaposi’s sarcoma-associated herpesvirus.
