We recently determined the complete sequence of the sugarcane chloroplast genome. Here, we have used the information for a comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of the genus Saccharum, using all six species (13 accessions). The polymorphisms between sugarcane and maize in 26 chloroplast genome regions were used for the analysis. In 18 of the 26 regions (a total of 5,381 bp), we found 41 mutations involving 17 substitutions, three inversions, six insertion/deletion mutations, and 15 simple… CONTINUE READING
