Universal plastid primers for Chlorophyta and Rhodophyta

A novel suite of primers that provide potentially valuable tools for both population and phylogenetic studies in red and green algae has been developed. As the existing repertoire of markers is extremely limited, the effort of optimising universal primers in individual studies is greatly outweighed by the benefits of having new markers, particularly where existing ones were unsuitable.
