  • Phylogenetic information is essential to interpret the evolution of species. While DNA sequences from different genomes have been widely utilized in phylogenetic reconstruction, it is still difficult to use nuclear genes to reconstruct phylogenies of plant groups with large genomes and complex gene families, such as gymnosperms. Here, we use two single-copy nuclear genes, together with chloroplast and mitochondrial genes, to reconstruct the phylogeny of the ecologically-important conifer family… CONTINUE READING
