A test for events around the Late Cretaceous is reported by describing the earliest penguin fossils, analyzing complete mitochondrial genomes from an albatross, a petrel, and a loon, and describing the gradual decline of pterosaurs at the same time modern birds radiate.
Mammalian mitogenomic relationships and the root of the eutherian tree
A mitogenomic study based on the set of protein-coding genes from complete mt genomes of 60 mammalian species finds that the previously unrepresented order Dermoptera (flying lemurs) fell within Primates as the sister group of Anthropoidea, making Primates paraphyletic.

The Complete Mitochondrial DNA Sequence of the Pig (Sus scrofa)
The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the pig, Sus scrofa, was determined and identified the pig (Suiformes) as a sister group of a cow/whale clade, making Artiodactyla paraphyletic.
Molecular Timing of Primate Divergences as Estimated by Two Nonprimate Calibration Points
The findings show that recalculation is necessary of all molecular datings based directly or indirectly on a Cercopithecoidea/Hominoidea split 30 MYBP, and all hominoid divergences receive a much earlier dating.
