Comparative analysis of plastid genomes of Orobanchaceae – adding up species from Korea.

Orobanchaceae show diverse life strategies from photosynthetic autotrophs to holoparasitic heterotrophic species. To increase our understanding of plastid genome evolution, we have expanded the research of Wicke et al.(2013)’s by adding plastid genomes of 10 more species consisting 8 genera from Korea: Orobanche, Lathraea, Phacellanthus, Pedicularis, Aeginetia, Melampyrum, and Boschniakia. The complete plastid genome sequences, obtained from assembling of NGS data, ranged from 161,803(Lathraea japonica) to 56,361 (Aeginetia indica) bp, and a probable complete loss of plastid genome from Boschniakia rossica. Plastid genomes show tendency of gradual loss of genes from ndh genes, phytosystem genes, cytb group genes, RNA polymerase genes, Rubisco & ATP synthase, tRNAs, and to ribosomal proteins. Detailed results & their implications will be further discussed.
