Technical Note


The complete chloroplast genomes (plastomes) of Adenolobus garipensis (E. Mey.) Torre & Hillc. and Cercis glabra Pampanini (Cercidoideae, Fabaceae) were reported in this study. The plastomes of the two species were 151,705 and 159,181 bp in length, respectively. The plastomes of both species presented quadripartite structure and comprised 111 unique genes including 77 protein-coding genes, 30 tRNAs and 4 rRNAs. The overall GC content were 36.9 and 36.2%, respectively. The phylogenetic analysis based on plastomes resolved Cercidoideae as the basal lineage in Fabaceae phylogeny. The complete plastomes of A. garipensis and C. glabra will provide a valuable basis for further study on genetic diversification, evolution and conservation of Cercidoideae.
