The land plants and their immediate green algal ancestors, the charophytes, form the Streptophyta. There is evidence that both the chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) underwent substantial changes in their architecture (intron insertions, gene losses, scrambling in gene order, and genome expansion in the case of mtDNA) during the evolution of streptophytes; however, because no charophyte organelle DNAs have been sequenced completely thus far, the suite of events that shaped… CONTINUE READING
