Variations of chloroplast DNAs in the genus Pelargonium and their biparental inheritance


The comparison of EcoRI patterns of chloroplast DNAs (ctDNAs) from five species of the genus Pelargonium and from 16 cultivars and varieties of Pelargonium zonale hort. demonstrates a remarkable inter- and intraspecific ctDNA (plastome) variation. The plastome of the P. zonale varieties could be differentiated into groups I, II and III. Reasons for this… (More)
