Vuralia turcica is endemic to Turkey and currently endangered. Little molecular information is available for this plant. Previous characterization and classification of V. turcica have been based on the DNA sequences of the ITS region. Molecular markers are essential for studying of genotyping and biogeography, but any of each marker is not enough to characterize a plant species in its use alone. In this study, the chloroplast rbcL and trnL regions were amplified in V. turcica using the primers

The partial rbcL and trnL sequences were submitted to the NCBI database (accession number KX164510, KX164511, respectively). Amplified both DNA of two regions of rbcL and trnL were used to construct a phylogenetic tree.
