Phylogenetic utility of nuclear nitrate reductase: a multi-locus comparison of nuclear and chloroplast sequence data for inference of relationships among American Lycieae (Solanaceae).


There has been considerable interest and research into the benefits of multiple low-copy nuclear regions for phylogenetic studies at low taxonomic levels. In this study, the phylogenetic utility of DNA sequence data from two low-copy nuclear genes, nitrate reductase (NIA) and granule-bound starch synthase I (GBSSI), was compared with data from nuclear… (More)
