Comparison of taxon-specific versus general locus sets for targeted sequence capture in plant phylogenomics.

Targeted sequence capture can be used to efficiently gather sequence data for large numbers of loci, such as single-copy nuclear loci. Most published studies in plants have used taxon-specific locus sets developed individually for a clade using multiple genomic and transcriptomic resources. General locus sets can also be developed from loci that have been identified as single-copy and having orthologs in large clades of plants. We identify and compare a taxon-specific locus set and three general locus sets (COSII, APVO SSC, PPR) for targeted sequence capture in Buddleja (Scrophulariaceae) and outgroups. We evaluate their performance in terms of assembly success, sequence variability, and resolution and support of inferred phylogenetic trees.
