    Intergenic spacer rpl32-trnL(UAG) [32] as well as the nuclear ITS area (ITS4-ITS5; [33]) were sequenced for all wild accessions and for any subsample of 23 cultivated I. batatas representing both cp lineages as defined in Roullier et al. [29] (164 samples in total; Tables S1 and S2). PCRs have been performed within a final volume of 20 mL, applying two mL of 1:10 diluted template DNA, 0.five mM of every primer, and 10 mL of Phusion Taq mastermix (New England Biolabs, Inc.). Amplification was performed just after five minutes denaturation at 98uC, over 30 cycles of 30 s denaturation at 98uC, 1 minute annealing at 57uC and 1 minute elongation at 72uC, in addition to a final elongation of five minutes, using a PTC-100 Thermocycler (MJ Research, Waltham, MA, USA). Fluorescent dye-terminator sequencing was performed by Agowa GmbH (Berlin, Germany).

The model sequence analysis and phylogenetic reconstructionForward and reverse chromatograms were assembled and visually checked independently by two investigators making use of Sequencher (Gene Codes, Ann Arbor, MI, USA). Only these chromatograms that created a clear consensus had been employed within the following analyses. ITS sequences resulted in a lot of heterozygotes. Length-variant heterozygotes have been systematically discarded, although length-invariant heterozygotes had been retained and coded with ambiguous character states when secondary peaks reached 50 on the key a single. Sequences were aligned employing Muscle (Edgar 2004, applying the EMBL web service readily available at Tools/msa/muscle/). The resulting alignment was edited employing BioEdit (Hall 1999). All mononucleotide repeats had been discarded considering the fact that these are prone to homoplasy [34], and indels were coded as binary characters, using the easy process of Simmons Ochoterena [35]. Bayesian and maximum likelihood reconstruction with the phylogenetic tree was performed for plastid information employing MRBAYES [36] and PhyML three.0 [37] respectively, working with the I. purpurea NCBI GenBank database sequence NC_009808.1 (122510?23547 bp) as an outgroup. The most likely model for sequence evolution wasPLOS One | http://www.plosone.orgselected among these implemented in FINDMODEL (http://www. working with the Akaike Data Criterion. Given that FINDMODEL does not admit binary character coding, model selection did not take indels into account. MRBAYES was run four times with four chains, for ten million iterations. Convergence was attained just after 2.five million iterations, which have been discarded as burn-in. A statistical parsimony haplotype network was also constructed for plastid data employing TCS 1.21 [38], with indels treated as a fifth character state. For the ITS sequences, maximum likelihood reconstruction was performed with PhyML three.0 [37] utilizing the I. purpurea NCBI GenBank database sequence AY538318 plus the most likely model for sequence evolution as determined in FI.
