Average synonymous (Ks) and nonsynonymous (Ka) substitution rates ofprotein-coding genes in the P. vulgaris or G. max plastomes. The data show average synonymous (Ks) and nonsynonymous (Ka) substitution rates of 75 protein-coding genes derived from comparing P. vulgaris or G. max plastomes with the reference plastomes of A. thaliana, L. japonicus or M. truncatula.
