The psbA-trnH intergenic region is among the most variable regions in the angiosperm chloroplast genome. It is a popular tool for plant population genetics and species level phylogenetics and has been proposed as suitable for DNA barcoding studies. This region contains two parts differing in their evolutionary conservation: 1) the psbA 3′UTR (untranslated region) and 2) the psbA-trnH intergenic non-transcribed spacer. We compared the sequence and RNA secondary structure of the psbA 3′ UTR… CONTINUE READING
