High transcript abundance, RNA editing, and small RNAs in intergenic regions within the massive mitochondrial genome of the angiosperm Silene noctiflora
Author(s):Wu, Zhiqiang; Stone, James D.; Štorchovaá, Helena; Sloan, Daniel B.
Background: Species within the angiosperm genus Silene contain the largest mitochondrial genomes ever identified. The enormity of these genomes (up to 11 Mb in size) appears to be the result of increased non-coding DNA, ...
Linear plasmids and the rate of sequence evolution in plant mitochondrial genomes
Author(s):Warren, Jessica M.; Simmons, Mark P.; Wu, Zhiqiang; Sloan,Daniel B.
The mitochondrial genomes of flowering plants experience frequent insertions of foreign sequences, including linear plasmids that also exist in standalone forms within mitochondria, but the history and phylogenetic ...
