12S rRNA, 16S rRNA and tRNAval as molecular markers
In many papers I saw they are using 12S rRNA, 16S rRNA and tRNAval as molecular markers for phylogenetic analyses. My question is why do they use those markers and not some others. Also, I would appreciate if you can tell me more about these markers (when to use them, Pros and Cons etc.).
Thank You in advance
