The genomics of land plant chloroplasts: Gene content and alteration of genomic information by RNA editing

Abstract

The entire nucleotide sequence of the chloroplast genome has been determined from 12 land plants. The gene content and arrangement are relatively uniform from species to species, and the genome contains an average of 111 identified gene species (except Epifagus). Chloroplast genes can be classified into three main categories: Genes for the photosynthetic… (More)
