Data from: Discriminating plants using the DNA barcode rbcLb: an appraisal based on a large data set

Wenpan Dong, Tao Cheng, Changhao Li, Chao Xu, Ping Long, Chunming Chen & Shiliang Zhou
The ideal DNA barcode for plants remains to be discovered, and the candidate barcode rbcL has been met with considerable skepticism since its proposal. In fact, the variability within this gene has never been fully explored across all plant groups from algae to flowering plants, and its performance as a barcode has not been adequately tested. By analyzing all of the rbcL sequences currently available in GenBank, we attempted to determine how well a region...
