Percent identity plots for three different stretches of plastid DNA present in the Liriodendron mitochondrial genome. A) 3,546 bp fragment with 84.4% average pairwise identity, excluding gaps; B) 2,859 bp fragment, 95.2% average pairwise identity, excluding gaps; C) 6,661 bp fragment, 99.9% average pairwise identity, excluding gaps. Above each graph is a linear representation of the Liriodendron chloroplast (cp) and cognate mitochondrial (mt) sequence, with line breaks indicating indels in one sequence relative to the other, and labeled genes represented by black rectangles. The vertical axis shows the percent identity scale and the horizontal axis shows the scale for the pairwise alignment; note the different horizontal scale for each graph.
