Phylogenetic positions of Chlorokybus and Mesostigma within the Viridiplantae as inferred from sequences derived from the chloroplast genome. (A) Best ML tree based on 45 proteins from 45 algal/plant taxa. (B) Best ML tree based on 45 genes from 45 algal/plant taxa. The eight non-green algae (bottom of the figure) were used as outgroup. The nodes that received 100% bootstrap support in ML, MP, ML-distance and LogDet-distance analyses are denoted by asterisks. For the other nodes, only the bootstrap values ≥50% are indicated; the values obtained in ML, MP, ML-distance, and LogDet-distance analyses are listed in this order from left to right. The detailed names of taxa are reported in the Methods. The 45 genes analyzed are as follows: atpA,B,E,F,H, petB,D,G, psaA,B,C,J, psbA,B,C,D,E,F,H,I,J,K,N,T,Z, rpl2,14,16,20,36, rpoB,C1,C2, rps2,3,4,7,8,11,12,14,18,19, ycf3,4.
