Re exploration of U’s Triangle Brassica Species Based on Chloroplast Genomes and 45S nrDNA Sequences

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5943242
PMID: 29743507
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-25585-4

[…] er also contains sequence and gene annotation information for all 28 genotypes. Similarly, 45SnrDNA genes (18S, 5.8S, and 26S) were annotated based on Blast analyses and reported reference units. The mvista tool was used to visualize comparative syntenic relationships with other genotypes. Complete chloroplast genomes and 40 complete 45SnrDNA sequences from 28 genotypes were deposited in GenBank ( […]


The Complete Plastome Sequences of Seven Species in Gentiana sect. Kudoa (Gentianaceae): Insights Into Plastid Gene Loss and Molecular Evolution

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5938401
PMID: 29765380
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2018.00493

[…] to sect. Cruciata, were obtained for comparative analysis from the National Center for Biotechnology Information. Genome comparisons were performed to identify the differences among the 11 taxa using mVISTA () and Geneious Basic 5.6.4 (). To identify divergence hotspots, nucleotide diversity (Pi) was determined using DnaSP V. 5.10 (). […]


The chloroplast genome of Cerasus humilis: Genomic characterization and phylogenetic analysis

PLoS One
PMCID: 5919044
PMID: 29694421
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0196473
call_split See protocol

[…] To investigate the differences between the C. humilis genome sequence and those of the other members of the same genus, we used the LAGAN alignment strategy as implemented in the mVISTA software to compare the whole genome sequence of ten species of Prunus with C. humilis, using C. humilis as reference [] ( In addition, the […]


The chloroplast genome sequence of bittersweet (Solanum dulcamara): Plastid genome structure evolution in Solanaceae

PLoS One
PMCID: 5919006
PMID: 29694416
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0196069

[…] ed on the Kimura 2-parameter model using MEGA 7.0.21 []. Standard error estimate(s) were obtained using bootstrap (1,000 replicates). Complete plastid genome sequences were compared and aligned using mVISTA online tools [], while the expansion and contraction of the inverted repeat (IR) regions at junction sites was examined and plotted using IRscope []. We identified and located repeat sequences […]


Chloroplast genome analyses and genomic resource development for epilithic sister genera Oresitrophe and Mukdenia (Saxifragaceae), using genome skimming data

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5885378
PMID: 29618324
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4633-x

[…] inense (Penthoraceae; JX436155) as the reference based on the results of Dong et al. [] and Soltis et al. []. The sequence identity of the five Saxifragaceae chloroplast genomes was plotted using the mVISTA program with LAGAN mode []. The cp DNA rearrangement analyses of five Saxifragaceae chloroplast genomes were performed using Mauve Alignment []. […]

PMCID: 5923464
PMID: 29614838
DOI: 10.3390/v10040170

[…] es (SIAS) server ( Protein secondary structure predictions were performed using PSIPRED v3.3, which is available at []. The mVISTA methods of alignment was used for the comparison of concatenated complete coding sequences of PRV-3 genome segments with PRV-1, -2, and LMBRV []. Phylogenetic trees were constructed using the R […]
