Molecular clock estimation on six Astragalus L. sections native to Turkey via cpDNA regions



Molecular identification and typing of lactobacillus delbrueckii subspecies bulgaricus and streptococcus thermophilus
Cebeci Aydın, Aysun; Gültekin, Güzin Candan; Department of Biochemistry (2008)
Lactic acid bacteria are associated with preservation of foods, including milk, meat and vegetables. Yoghurt is produced by the cooperative action of two starter bacteria; S. thermophilus and L. delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus. In this study, identification and typing of yoghurt starter bacteria were aimed. Traditional home made yoghurts were collected from different areas of Turkey, identification of those isolates at species and subspecies level and typing at strain level were achieved using PCR based metho...
Molecular phylogenetic analyses of Juniperus L. species in Turkey and their relations with other junipers based on cpDNA
Güvendiren, Aysun Demet; Kaya, Zeki; Department of Biology (2015)
Evolutionary relationships within and among two sections and three subsections of Juniperus species (Section Juniperus, subsections Juniperus, Oxycedrus and Caryocedrus, Section Sabina) naturally distributed in Turkey were investigated with molecular variations of chloroplast DNA (cpDNA). This study revealed the phylogenetic relation of 66 individuals from 7 native Turkish Juniperus L. species based upon DNA sequence of trnL intron (trnL5’-L3’) , trnL3’- F(GAA) (trnL-F intergenic spacer), trnV intron and ma...
Molecular phylogeny of relict-endemic Liquidambar orientalis Mill based on sequence diversity of the chloroplast-encoded matK gene
Ozdilek, Asli; Cengel, Burcu; Kandemir, Gaye; Tayanc, Yasemin; Velioglu, Ercan; Kaya, Zeki (2012-02-01)
The genetic diversity and evolutionary divergence in Liquidambar species and Liquidambar orientalis varieties were compared with respect to the matK gene. A total of 66 genotypes from 18 different populations were sampled in southwestern Turkey. The matK region, which is about 1,512 bp in length, was sequenced and studied. L. orientalis, L. styraciflua, and L. formosana had similar magnitude of nucleotide diversity, while L. styraciflua and L. acalycina possessed higher evolutionary divergence. The highest ...

Molecular phylogenetic position of Turkish abies (pinaceae) based on noncoding trn regions of chloroplast genome
Özdemir Değirmenci, Funda; Kaya, Zeki; Department of Biology (2011)
Abies is the second largest genus of family Pinaceae (after Pinus), consisting of about 51 species, all native to the Northern Hemisphere. There are six native taxa belonging to this genus growing in pure and mixed stands in Turkey. Abies cilicica subsp. isaurica, Abies nordmanniana subsp. bornmülleriana, Abies nordmanniana subsp. equi-trojani, Abies x olcayana are endemic and considered as lower risk (LR) species. To determine the genetic relationships in Turkish firs, 18 populations of different subspecie...
