Recently, we used the 5'-trnL(UAA)-trnF(GAA) region of the chloroplast DNA for phylogeographic reconstructions and phylogenetic analysis among the genera Arabidopsis, Boechera, Rorippa, Nasturtium, and Cardamine. Despite the fact that extensive gene duplications are rare among the chloroplast genome of higher plants, within these taxa the anticodon domain of the trnF(GAA) gene exhibit extensive gene duplications with one to eight tandemly repeated copies in close 5' proximity of the functional… CONTINUE READING
