  • One major lineage of green plants, the Chlorophyta, is represented by the green algal classes Prasinophyceae, Ulvophyceae, Trebouxiophyceae, and Chlorophyceae. The Prasinophyceae occupies the most basal position in the Chlorophyta, but the branching order of the Ulvophyceae, Trebouxiophyceae, and Chlorophyceae remains unresolved. The chloroplast genome sequences currently available for representatives of three chlorophyte classes have revealed that this genome is highly plastic, with… CONTINUE READING
