The Chloroplast Genome of Cerasus Campanulata Gives Insight Into Diverse Phylogenetics With Other Prunoideae Genomes

  • Yuhao Weng Nanjing Forestry University


Cerasus Campanulata is one of species which belongs to the Prunoideae focke, a subfamily of the flowering plant Rosaceae order. Here we use the complete chloroplast (cp) genome sequence of C. campanulata and make Sequence analysis to reveal the presence of 18 forward repeats, 20 palindrome repeats, 2 complement repeats, 4 reverse repeats and 93 simple sequence repeats (SSRs). A comparative study of C. campanulata and seven other Prunoideae focke species was carried out. Maximum parsimony (MP) and maximum likelihood (ML) phylogenetic analyses were performed in the little part of Rosaceae order to verify the Phylogenetic analyses which used Bayesian analysis and were performed based on 62 protein-coding genes from 57 species again. The complete cp genome can be used for plant phylogenetic and evolutionary studies and will provide insight into the degree of gene conservation. Moreover, the results strongly support the position of C. campanulata as a member of the Rosaceae order.
