Organellar genome sequences provide numerous phylogenetic markers and yield insight into organellar function and molecular evolution. These genomes are much smaller in size than their nuclear counterparts; thus, their complete sequencing is much less expensive than total nuclear genome sequencing, making broader phylogenetic sampling feasible. However; for some organisms, it is challenging to isolate plastid DNA for sequencing using standard methods. To overcome these difficulties, we… CONTINUE READING
