  1. pmc Insights into the evolution of mitochondrial genome size from complete sequences of Citrullus lanatus and Cucurbita pepo (Cucurbitaceae)
    Andrew J Alverson
    Department of Biology, Indiana University, USA
    Mol Biol Evol 27:1436-48. 2010
    ..The evolution of mutation rate, genome size, and RNA editing are apparently decoupled in Cucurbitaceae, reflecting either simple stochastic variation or governance by different factors...
  2. pmc The mitochondrial genome of the legume Vigna radiata and the analysis of recombination across short mitochondrial repeats
    Andrew J Alverson
    Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 6:e16404. 2011
    ..The average-sized but repeat- and feature-poor mitochondrial genome of Vigna makes it ever more difficult to generalize about the factors shaping the size and sequence content of plant mitochondrial genomes...
  3. pmc Rapid evolution of enormous, multichromosomal genomes in flowering plant mitochondria with exceptionally high mutation rates
    Daniel B Sloan
    Department of Biology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia, United States of America
    PLoS Biol 10:e1001241. 2012
    ..Our results raise the hypothesis that changes in recombinational processes, including gene conversion, may be a central force driving the evolution of both mutation rate and genome structure...
  4. pmc Recent acceleration of plastid sequence and structural evolution coincides with extreme mitochondrial divergence in the angiosperm genus Silene
    Daniel B Sloan
    Department of Biology, University of Virginia, VA, USA
    Genome Biol Evol 4:294-306. 2012

    Danny W Rice
    Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN 47405, USA
    Science 342:1468-73. 2013
    ..Amborella's epiphyte load, propensity to produce suckers from wounds, and low rate of mitochondrial DNA loss probably all contribute to the high level of foreign DNA in its mitochondrial genome. ..

    Andrian Gutu
    Department of Biology and Indiana Molecular Biology Institute, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN, 47405
