For molecular phylogenetic reconstruction of some intrageneric groups of plants, a DNA region is needed that evolves more rapidly than the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) of the 18S-26S nuclear ribosomal DNA (nrDNA) repeat. If the region identified is nuclear, it would also be desirable for it to undergo rapid concerted evolution to eliminate problems with coalescence. The external transcribed spacer (ETS) of the nrDNA repeat has shown promise for intrageneric phylogenetic reconstruction, but… CONTINUE READING
