Modes and rates of molecular evolution, and congruence and combinability for phylogenetic reconstruction, of portions of the nuclear large ribosomal subunit (nLSU-rDNA) and mitochondrial small subunit (mtSSU-rDNA) genes were investigated in the mushroom genus Amanita. The AT content was higher in the mtSSU-rDNA than in the nLSU-rDNA. A transition bias in which AT substitutions were as frequent as transitions was present in the mtSSU-rDNA but not in the nLSU-rDNA. Among-sites rate variation in… CONTINUE READING
