Data from: Barcoding the kingdom Plantae: new PCR primers for ITS regions of plants with improved universality and specificity

Tao Cheng, Chao Xu, Li Lei, Changhao Li, Yu Zhang & Shiliang Zhou
The internal transcribed spacer (ITS) of nuclear ribosomal DNA is one of the most commonly used DNA markers in plant phylogenetic and DNA barcoding analyses, and it has been recommended as a core plant DNA barcode. Despite this popularity, the universality and specificity of PCR primers for the ITS region are not satisfactory, resulting in amplification and sequencing difficulties. By thoroughly surveying and analysing the 18S, 5.8S and 26S sequences of Plantae and Fungi from...
