    Research Center for Biodiversity, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan
    Mol Biol Evol 24:2040-8. 2007
    ..Our observations support the proposition of Richly and Leister (2004) that "primary insertions of organellar DNAs are large and then diverge and fragment over evolutionary time."..

    Chung Shien Wu
    Biodiversity Research Center, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan
    Genome Biol Evol 5:243-54. 2013
