From: Polyphyletic origin of the genus Physarum(Physarales, Myxomycetes) revealed by nuclear rDNA mini-chromosome analysis and group I intron synapomorphy

Figure 1

Schematic presentation of the analyzed rDNA regions in myxomycetes. The SSU rRNA and LSU rRNA gene regions used in phylogenetic reconstructions correspond to approximately 1800 nt and 750 nt, respectively. Myxomycete SSU and LSU rRNA genes are frequently interrupted by group I introns in myxomycetes. The position of each intron insertion site in analyzed regions is indicated and numbered according to the E.coli rRNA gene [25].
