Variability and properties of the markers (three plastid, two nuclear) used in Clermontia
rbcL psbA-trnH matK Combined plastid Clerm2 Clerm4
Length, excluding primers 533 439 837-858 1829-1850 556 172
Number of variable sites (number of indels) 5 5 4 (1) 14 (1) 10 3
Percent of variable sites, excluding indels 0.90 1.14 0.005 0.008 1.80 1.74
Percent of “ghost” haplotypes 16.7 16.7 16.7 56.3 0 0
Ramification index 0 0.2 0 0.13 0.58 0.25

“Ghost” alleles are intermediate alleles that were not recovered in any of the accessions sampled. The ramification index (I) was calculated as follows: I = 1 – (longest distance between two haplotypes/total length of the network).
