PREMISE OF THE STUDY Genome survey sequences (GSS) from massively parallel sequencing have potential to provide large, cost-effective data sets for phylogenetic inference, replace single gene or spacer regions as DNA barcodes, and provide a plethora of data for other comparative molecular evolution studies. Here we report on the application of this method to estimating the molecular phylogeny of core Asparagales, investigating plastid gene losses, assembling complete plastid genomes, and… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Assembly and comparative analysis of transposable elements from low coverage genomic sequence data in Asparagales.
TLDR
The major finding is that although some lineages in Asparagales exhibit conservation in repeat proportions, there is generally wide variation in types and frequency of repeats.
A targeted enrichment strategy for massively parallel sequencing of angiosperm plastid genomes1
TLDR
A targeted enrichment strategy to facilitate rapid and low-cost next-generation sequencing (NGS) of numerous complete plastid genomes from across the phylogenetic breadth of angiosperms was explored and yielded nearly complete to complete plasts with exceptionally high coverage.
Are Differences in Genomic Data Sets due to True Biological Variants or Errors in Genome Assembly: An Example from Two Chloroplast Genomes
TLDR
The genomic composition of GU592209 was heterogeneous in coding and non-coding regions, which should impel biologists to carefully consider the quality of sequencing and assembly when working with next-generation data.
The Mitochondrial Genome of Eleusine indica and Characterization of Gene Content within Poaceae
TLDR
The mt genome for Eleusine indica is comprehensibly analyzed here, providing key reference data for an economically significant invasive species that is also the maternal parent of the allotetraploid crop Finger millet (Eleusine coracana).
Evaluating character partitioning and molecular models in plastid phylogenomics at low taxonomic levels: A case study using Amphilophium (Bignonieae, Bignoniaceae)
TLDR
It is argued that the selection of appropriate partition strategies and evolutionary models is important to increase accuracy in phylogenetic relationships, even when using plastome datasets, which is still the primarily used genome in plant phylogenetics.
Highly effective sequencing whole chloroplast genomes of angiosperms by nine novel universal primer pairs
TLDR
The designed universal primer pairs provide a possibility to accelerate genome‐scale data acquisition and will therefore magnify the phylogenetic resolution and species identification in angiosperms.
An introduction to plant phylogenomics with a focus on palms
Phylogenomics refers to the use of phylogenetic trees to interpret gene function and genome evolution and to the use of genome-scale data to build phylogenetic trees. The field of phylogenomics has
SMRT sequencing only de novo assembly of the sugar beet (Beta vulgaris) chloroplast genome
TLDR
SMRT sequencing reads extracted from a dataset created for nuclear genome (re)sequencing can be used to obtain a high quality de novo assembly of the chloroplast of the sequenced organism.
Genomic Treasure Troves: Complete Genome Sequencing of Herbarium and Insect Museum Specimens
TLDR
It is shown that using a standard multiplex and paired-end Illumina sequencing approach, genome-scale sequence data can be generated reliably from dry-preserved plant, fungal and insect specimens collected up to 115 years ago, and with minimal destructive sampling.

Background Chloroplast genomes provide a wealth of information for evolutionary and population genetic studies. Chloroplasts play a particularly important role in the adaption for aquatic plants
Increasing phylogenetic resolution at low taxonomic levels using massively parallel sequencing of chloroplast genomes
TLDR
Plastome sequencing is now an efficient option for increasing phylogenetic resolution at lower taxonomic levels in plant phylogenetic and population genetic analyses, and with continuing improvements in sequencing capacity, the strategies herein should revolutionize efforts requiring dense taxon and character sampling.
Phylogeny, Genome Size, and Chromosome Evolution of Asparagales
TLDR
Genomic tools such as bacterial artificial chromosome libraries should be developed, as both molecular cytogenetic markers and a source of nuclear genes that can be widely used by evolutionary biologists and plant breeders alike to decipher mechanisms of chromosomal evolution.
The complete chloroplast genome sequence of Brachypodium distachyon: sequence comparison and phylogenetic analysis of eight grass plastomes
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses and the pattern of insertions and deletions in the chloroplast genome confirmed that Brachypodium is a close relative of the tribe Triticeae and demonstrated that BAC libraries can be used to sequence plastid, and likely other organellar, genomes.
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.
The tortoise and the hare II: relative utility of 21 noncoding chloroplast DNA sequences for phylogenetic analysis.
TLDR
The results of this study show that a survey using as few as three representative taxa can be predictive of the amount of phylogenetic information offered by a cpDNA region and that rate heterogeneity exists among noncoding cpDNA regions.
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.
Biodiversity assessment: state-of-the-art techniques in phylogenomics and species identification.
TLDR
An abundance of genomic information will have a broad range of applications, including not only helping conservation biologists understand ecosystem biodiversity, but also understanding the evolutionary histories of organisms, mending damaged landscapes, and investigating interactions of plants with pollinators and pests.
Assembling the Tree of the Monocotyledons: Plastome Sequence Phylogeny and Evolution of Poales1
TLDR
The results of an initial project by the Monocot AToL (Angiosperm Tree of Life) team on phylogeny and evolution in Poales are presented, using sequence data for 81 plastid genes from 83 species of angiosperms and recovered highly concordant relationships using maximum likelihood (ML) and maximum parsimony (MP).
Long branch attraction, taxon sampling, and the earliest angiosperms: Amborella or monocots?
TLDR
Amborella (or Amborella plus Nymphaea), but not monocots, is the sister group of all other angiosperms among this limited set of taxa and that the grasses-sister topology is a long-branch-attraction artifact leading to incorrect rooting of angios perms.
