The grade of early-diverging eudicots includes five major lineages: Ranunculales, Trochodendrales, Buxales, Proteales and Sabiaceae. To examine the evolution of plastome structure in early-diverging eudicots, we determined the complete plastome sequences of eight previously unsequenced early-diverging eudicot taxa, Pachysandra terminalis (Buxaceae), Meliosma aff. cuneifolia (Sabiaceae), Sabia yunnanensis (Sabiaceae), Epimedium sagittatum (Berberidaceae), Euptelea pleiosperma (Eupteleaceae… Expand
Complete plastome sequencing of both living species of Circaeasteraceae (Ranunculales) reveals unusual rearrangements and the loss of the ndh gene family
TLDR
The first plastome sequencing of Circaeasteraceae resulted in the discovery of several unusual rearrangements and the loss of ndh genes, and confirms the sister relationship between Circaeastersaceae and Lardizabalaceae. Expand
Plastome phylogenomics of the early-diverging eudicot family Berberidaceae.
TLDR
Biogeographical analysis indicated the origin and diversification of Berberidaceae has likely been strongly influenced by the distribution of its favored habitat: temperate forests. Expand
Evolutionary Comparisons of the Chloroplast Genome in Lauraceae and Insights into Loss Events in the Magnoliids
TLDR
Using phylogenetic analysis and structural comparisons, different loss events occurred in different lineages of the Laurales, and fragment loss events in the IR regions have largely driven the contraction of the plastome in the Lauraceae. Expand
Plastid phylogenomics resolves infrafamilial relationships of the Styracaceae and sheds light on the backbone relationships of the Ericales.
TLDR
The results demonstrate the power of plastid phylogenomics to improve phylogenetic hypotheses among genera and families, and provide new insight into plastome evolution across Ericales. Expand
Plastome phylogenomics of Saussurea (Asteraceae: Cardueae)
TLDR
This study demonstrates that the current taxonomy of Saussurea is likely based at least partly on convergent morphological character states, and reveals both the structural conservatism and power of the plastome for resolving relationships in congeneric taxa. Expand
Extremely low nucleotide diversity among thirty-six new chloroplast genome sequences from Aldama (Heliantheae, Asteraceae) and comparative chloroplast genomics analyses with closely related genera
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis shows that Aldama is not monophyletic due to the position of the Mexican species A. dentata, and all Brazilian species form a strongly supported clade. Expand
Comparative Chloroplast Genomics of Corydalis Species (Papaveraceae): Evolutionary Perspectives on Their Unusual Large Scale Rearrangements
TLDR
In this study, Corydalis is revealed to be another unusual lineage with extensive large-scale plastome rearrangements and elevated GC content in both gene and intergenic regions and high number of dispersed repeats. Expand
Complete plastome sequencing from Toona (Meliaceae) and phylogenomic analyses within Sapindales
TLDR
Phylogenomic analysis of Sapindales recovered a mostly strongly supported phylogeny of SapIndales, including most of the backbone relationships, with some improvements compared to previous targeted‐gene analyses. Expand
Intergeneric Relationships within the Early-Diverging Angiosperm Family Nymphaeaceae Based on Chloroplast Phylogenomics
TLDR
Although genomic comparative analyses revealed a high degree of synteny among the chloroplast genomes of the ancient angiosperms, key minor variations were evident, particularly in the contraction/expansion of the inverted-repeat regions and in RNA-editing events. Expand
Complete plastid genome sequences of two species of the Neotropical genus Brunellia (Brunelliaceae)
TLDR
The first two complete plastid genomes for Brunelliaceae, a Neotropical family with a single genus, Brunellia, are presented and Phylogenetic analyses of selected superrosid representatives show high bootstrap support for the ((C,M)O) topology. Expand

Phylogenetic and evolutionary implications of complete chloroplast genome sequences of four early-diverging angiosperms: Buxus (Buxaceae), Chloranthus (Chloranthaceae), Dioscorea (Dioscoreaceae), and Illicium (Schisandraceae).
TLDR
The results indicate that Amborella alone is sister to the remaining angiosperms; the Nymphaeales represent the next-diverging clade followed by Illicium; Chloranthus is sister of the magnoliids and together this group is sisters to a large clade that includes eudicots and monocots; and Dioscorea represents an early-d diverging lineage of monocot just internal to Acorus.

Complete Plastid Genome Sequencing of Trochodendraceae Reveals a Significant Expansion of the Inverted Repeat and Suggests a Paleogene Divergence between the Two Extant Species
TLDR
Molecular dating analyses suggest that Tetracentron and Trochodendron diverged between 44-30 million years ago, which is congruent with the fossil record of TroChodendrales and with previous estimates of the divergence time of these two taxa. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships among early-diverging eudicots based on four genes: were the eudicots ancestrally woody?
TLDR
The character reconstructions indicate that the woody habit is ancestral, not only for the basal angiosperms, but also for the eudicots, and Ranunculales may not be ancestrally herbaceous, as long maintained. Expand
A Comparative Analysis of Whole Plastid Genomes from the Apiales: Expansion and Contraction of the Inverted Repeat, Mitochondrial to Plastid Transfer of DNA, and Identification of Highly Divergent Noncoding Regions
Abstract Previous mapping studies have revealed that the frequency and large size of inverted repeat junction shifts in Apiaceae plastomes are unusual among angiosperms. To further examine plastomeExpand
Phylogenetic analysis of 83 plastid genes further resolves the early diversification of eudicots
TLDR
A phylogenetic hypothesis provides a crucial historical framework for future studies aimed at elucidating the underlying causes of the morphological and species diversity in Pentapetalae. Expand
Phylogenetics of early branching eudicots: Comparing phylogenetic signal across plastid introns, spacers, and genes
TLDR
The results show that a small number of intron and spacer sequences allow similar insights into phylogenetic relationships of eudicots compared to datasets of many combined genes, and the non‐coding proportion of the plastid genome can be considered an important information source for plastsid phylogenomics.

Identifying the basal angiosperm node in chloroplast genome phylogenies: sampling one's way out of the Felsenstein zone.
TLDR
Whereas long sequences reduce variance in branch lengths and molecular dating estimates, the impact of improved taxon sampling on the rooting of the angiosperm phylogeny together with the results of parametric bootstrap analyses demonstrate how long-branch attraction might mislead genome-scale phylogenetic analyses. Expand
Phylogeny of basal eudicots: Insights from non-coding and rapidly evolving DNA
TLDR
It appears that the combined analysis of sequence data from rapidly evolving and non-coding genomic regions leads to significantly improved statistical support values in comparison to earlier studies of basal eudicots using multiple conserved genes. Expand
Analysis of 81 genes from 64 plastid genomes resolves relationships in angiosperms and identifies genome-scale evolutionary patterns
TLDR
Phylogenetic trees from multiple methods provide strong support for the position of Amborella as the earliest diverging lineage of flowering plants, followed by Nymphaeales and Austrobaileyales, and the plastid genome trees also provide strongSupport for a sister relationship between eudicots and monocots, and this group is sister to a clade that includes Chloranthales and magnoliids.

Using plastid genome-scale data to resolve enigmatic relationships among basal angiosperms
TLDR
Parsimony analyses of combined and partitioned data sets varied in the placement of several taxa, particularly Ceratophyllum, whereas maximum-likelihood (ML) trees were more topologically stable, and ML bootstrap and Bayesian support values for these relationships were generally high, although approximately unbiased topology tests could not reject several alternative topologies.
