Data from: Patterns and evolution of nucleotide landscapes in seed plants

Laurana Serres-Giardi, Khalid Belkhir, Jacques David & Sylvain Glémin
Nucleotide landscapes, which is the way base composition is distributed along a genome, strongly vary among species. The underlying causes of these variations have been much debated. Though mutational bias and selection were initially invoked, GC-biased gene conversion (gBGC), a recombination-associated process favoring the G and C over A and T bases, is increasingly recognized as a major factor. As opposed to vertebrates, evolution of GC content is less well known in plants. Most studies...
