Rate variation in parasitic plants: correlated and uncorrelated patterns among plastid genes of different function.Young, Nelson D.
Pamphilis, Claude W.
Background: The analysis of synonymous and nonsynonymous rates of DNA change can help in the choice among competing explanations for rate variation, such as differences in constraint, mutation rate, or the strength of genetic drift. Nonphotosynthetic plants of the Orobanchaceae have increased rates of DNA change. In this study 38 taxa of ... read more
