Molecular Data from the Chloroplast rpoC1 Gene Suggest a Deep and Distinct Dichotomy of Contemporary Spermatophytes into Two Monophyla: Gymnosperms (Including Gnetales) and Angiosperms

Partial sequences of the rpoC1 gene from two species of angiosperms and three species of gymnosperms (8330 base pairs) were determined and compared. The data obtained support the hypothesis that angiosperms and gymnosperms are monophyletic and none of the recent groups of the latter is sister to angiosperms.
