Comparative Phylogenetic Analysis of Ancient Korean Tea "Hadong Cheon-Nyeon Cha ( < em > Camellia sinensis < /em > var. < em > sinensis < /em > )" Using Complete Chloroplast Genome Sequences

This study determined seven Camellia sinensis var. sinenesis, including Hadong Cheon-nyeon Cha (HCNC) chloroplast genome sequences, using Illumina sequencing technology via de novo assembly. The chloroplast genome sizes ranged from 157,019 to 157,114 bp and were organized into quadripartite regions with the typical chloroplast genomes. Further, differences in SNPs and InDels were detected across the seven chloroplast genomes through variance analysis. Principal component and phylogenetic analysis suggested that regional constraints, rather than functional constraints, strongly affected the sequence evolution of the cp genomes in this study. These genomic resources provide evolutionary insight into Korean tea plant cultivars and lay the foundation for a better understanding of the ancient Korean tea plant HCNC.PMID:38392187 | PMC:PMC10888334 | DOI:10.3390/cimb46020069
