Abstract

Accurate identification and cataloging of plant genomic resources are essential for agronomy management, genetic diversity characterizations, and phylogenetic analyses. This study examines the identifications of plant genomic resources, specifically utilizing the matK and trnL chloroplast regions as well as the nuclear ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region. Our findings will provide insight on the reliability of plant genomic resources as well as intra-species variations. This study further assesses the viability of matK, trnL, and ITS regions for “barcoding” purposes.
