    Melvin J Oliver
    USDA ARS MWA, Plant Genetics Research Unit, University of Missouri, 205 Curtis Hall, Columbia, MO 65211, USA
    BMC Genomics 11:143. 2010
    ..In this paper, we present the chloroplast genome sequence of T. ruralis, only the second published chloroplast genome for a moss, and the first for a vegetatively desiccation-tolerant plant...
  2. pmc Complete plastome sequences of Equisetum arvense and Isoetes flaccida: implications for phylogeny and plastid genome evolution of early land plant lineages
    Kenneth G Karol
    The Lewis B, and Dorothy Cullman Program for Molecular Systematics Studies, The New York Botanical Garden, Bronx, NY 10458, USA
    BMC Evol Biol 10:321. 2010
    ..To better understand the evolution of land plants and their plastomes, we examined aligned nucleotide sequences, indels, gene and nucleotide composition, inversions, and gene order at the boundaries of the inverted repeats...
  3. doi request reprint The evolution of chloroplast genes and genomes in ferns
    Paul G Wolf
    Department of Biology, Utah State University, Logan, UT, USA
    Plant Mol Biol 76:251-61. 2011
    ..We also explore global nucleotide substitution patterns in ferns versus those found in seed plants across plastid genes, and we review the high levels of RNA editing observed in fern plastomes...

    Paul G Wolf
    Department of Biology, Utah State University, 5305 Old Main Hill, Logan, UT 84322, USA
    DNA Res 10:59-65. 2003
    ..The missing trnK gene appears to have been disrupted by a large inversion, relative to other published chloroplast genomes. We detected several structural rearrangements that may provide useful information for phylogenetic studies...

    P G Wolf
    Department of Biology and Ecology Center, Utah State University, Logan, UT 84322, USA
    J Hered 95:301-8. 2004
    ..We hypothesize that isolation-by-distance at this smaller scale is a function of restricted gene flow via seed dispersal...

    Gene 339:89-97. 2004
    ..capillus-veneris are homologous to editing sites in the hornwort, and some other land plants. This implies that a major component of RNA editing sites have been conserved for hundreds of millions of years...

    Paul G Wolf
    Department of Biology, and Ecology Center, Utah State University, Logan, UT 84322, USA
    Genome 53:731-8. 2010
    ..This is because the intron loss maps to an earlier point on the phylogeny than the nearby inversion. We speculate on why inversions may occur in pairs and what this may mean for the dynamics of plastome evolution...

    Mol Phylogenet Evol 19:144-56. 2001

    National Institute for Basic Biology, Okazaki, Japan
    Mol Biol Evol 21:1813-9. 2004
    ..Bryophyte monophyly inferred using amino acid sequences has a good statistical foundation and is not rejected statistically by other data sets. We propose bryophyte monophyly as the currently best hypothesis...
