Long-term seed storage is important for protecting both economic interests and biodiversity. The extraordinary properties of seeds allow us to store them in the right conditions for years. However, not all types of seeds are resilient, and some do not tolerate extreme desiccation or low temperature. Seeds can be divided into three categories: (1) o...

The Socotra dragon`s blood tree (Dracaena cinnabari Balf.) is endemic to the island of Socotra in Yemen. This iconic species plays an essential role in the survival of associated organisms, acting as an umbrella tree. Overexploitation, overgrazing by livestock, global climate change, and insufficient regeneration mean that the populations of this v...

The internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) is one of the best-known universal DNA barcode regions. This short nuclear region is commonly used not only to discriminate taxa, but also to reconstruct phylogenetic relationships. However, the efficiency of using ITS2 in these applications depends on many factors, including the family under study. Pinaceae...

The Pinus mugo complex is a large group of closely related mountain pines, which are an important component of the ecosystems of the most important mountain ranges, such as the Alps, Carpathians and Pyrenees. The phylogenetic relationships between taxa in this complex have been under discussion for many years. Despite the use of many different appr...
Article
Full-text available
The Pinus mugo complex includes several dozen closely related European mountain pines. The discrimination of specific taxa within this complex is still extremely challenging, although numerous methodologies have been used to solve this problem, including morphological and anatomical analyses, cytological studies, allozyme variability, and DNA barco...

Dracaena draco, which belongs to the genus Dracaena, is an endemic succulent of the Canary Islands. Although it is one of the most popular and widely grown ornamental plants in the world, little is known about its genomic variability. Next generation sequencing, especially in combination with advanced bioinformatics analysis, is a new standard in t...

p>The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the sequence variation for two regions of chloroplast DNA in a collection of 27 taxonomically well-annotated clonal lines of Marchantia polymorpha sensu lato derived from European populations. We attempted to develop molecular markers so as to identify three taxa usually recognized as subspecies. W...

Taxonomic status of endangered peat-bog pine, Pinus uliginosa (Neumann) classified within the Pinus mugo complex, still remains to be elucidated. Here we present a complete chloroplast genome of P. uliginosa, to aid resolve its complex systematical position. The total genome size was 119,877 bp in length and contained a total of 112 genes, includin...
Article
DNA barcoding is a standard and efficient method, frequently used for identification, discrimination and discovery of new species. Although this approach is very useful for classifying the world's biodiversity, little is known about its usefulness in barcoding at lower taxonomic level and its discrimination rate for closely related species, like co...

Marchantia polymorpha L. is a complex of three genetically distinct taxa of subspecific (or specific) rank. Our recent sequencing studies of barcoding markers from several European populations revealed substantial divergence between M. polymorpha L. and homologous sequence of ‘Marchantia polymorpha’ (NC_001319). It was suggested that callus line us...

The liverwort genus Conocephalum Hill is composed of three morphospecies: C. conicum L. (Dum), recently described C. salebrosum Szweyk. Buczk. Odrzyk. and C. japonicum (Thunb.) Grolle. It was postulated that both C. conicum and C. japonicum include four and three cryptic species respectively, with more restricted allopatric distribution. Originally...

Summary RNA interference (RNAi) is a natural process of degradation or expression inhibition of target transcript by specific short RNA molecules (siRNA or miRNA). It protects the genome from viruses and regulates the expression of genes. Due to high specificity, the mechanism of RNAi may also find use in the treatment of diseases. RNAi therapeutic...
