Chloroplast genome of the invasive Pyrus calleryana underscores the high molecular diversity of the species
Journal of Applied Genetics 63 (3), 463-467
Abstract: The complete chloroplast genome of Pyrus calleryana (GenBank OM541581.1) was developed by de novo assembly from whole-genome sequencing data. Reference-guided (P. phaeocarpa) read mapping and assembly were followed by annotation and phylogenetic comparisons. The 159,965 bp P. calleryana chloroplast genome represented 36.56% GC content with a classical quadripartite architecture and two inverted repeats regions (IRs; each 26,392 bp) separating the large single-copy region (LSC; 87,942 bp) and the small single-copy region (SSC; 19.239 bp). In total, 125 unique features were annotated in that genome, including 83 protein coding genes, 38 tRNA coding genes, and 4 rRNA coding genes. Phylogenetic analyses based on the whole chloroplast genome sequences placed the P. calleryana among other Rosaceae plants, specifically among the Asian species of Pyrus.
