Method Abstract: ""The limited transfer window hypothesis" predicts that species with only one plastid per cell will have fewer NUPTs [nuclear plastid DNA-like sequences] than those with many plastids per cell, but a lack of genome sequence data from monoplastidic species has made this hypothesis difficult to test. Here, by analyzing newly available genome sequences from diverse mono- and polyplastidic taxa, [investigators] show that the hypothesis holds."
Comments P.366 right column 2nd paragraph: "Of the 30 species [researchers] investigated, 11 are polyplastidic and 19 are either monoplastidic or effectively so. Thirteen of the monoplastidic species are also monomitochondrial (i.e., they have one mitochondrion per cell). The number of organelles per cell for each species and the references used to determine these statistics are listed in table 1 and supplementary table S3 (Supplementary Material online), respectively." NUPTs=nuclear plastid DNA-like sequences. NUMTs=nuclear DNAs of mitochondrial origin. See notes beneath table
