Sequence variation at cpDNA regions of watermelon and related wild species: implications for the evolution of Citrullus haplotypes.


Sequencing analysis of one coding and four noncoding cpDNA regions was conducted to infer biogeographic and evolutionary relationships in the genus Citrullus. Eighteen taxa from diverse geographical areas were included. A low number of parsimony informative characters (1.1%) was observed at the ∼4 kb section of cpDNA. Variability within Citrullus was… (More)
