It is concluded that supposed molecular mechanism of the VRN1 gene activating in cultivated diploid wheat species T. boeoticum and T. timopheevii can be concluded that is responsible for origin of spring wheat forms in evolution and domestication process.

The analysis suggests that there were two ancestral representatives of Aegilops speltoides Tausch that participated in the speciation of polyploid wheats with B and G genome in their genome composition and that G genome species are younger in evolution than ones with B genome.

Two mitochondrial genes, Cytochrome b (Cytb) and COI, have been used as phylogenetic markers in Chironomids and six clusters of species have been revealed with high bootstrap values supporting both monophyly of each cluster and the validity of the branching order within each cluster.

It is found that plant L1s carry an active Archaea-like ribonuclease H (RNH) domain, suggesting that they shuttle RNH between plants, bacteria, and Archaea, and it is identified that modular evolution as a major trend in the evolution of plant L 1 retrotransposons.
A molecular assessment of the extent of variation and dispersal between Australian populations of the genus Archaeochlus Brundin (Diptera : Chironomidae)

The DNA sequence of the mitochondrial Cytb gene is used to assess the phylogenetic relationships between populations of three species, and to examine the hypothesis that these populations achieved their present distribution via ancient river systems that existed up until about 65 million years ago.
Population variability in Chironomus (Camptochironomus) species (Diptera, Nematocera) with a Holarctic distribution: evidence of mitochondrial gene flow
Calculation of divergence times, based on the sequence data, suggest that C. tentans and C. pallidivittatus have both been in North America for about 2.5 My, and the mt tree divided the populations by continental region, rather than by the species groupings recognized by the other data sets.

A molecular analysis of the phylogenetic relationships of a heterogeneous group of Iris species occurring in Siberia and covering major taxonomic groups indicates that the phylogeny and taxonomic structure of the genus Iris may need reconsideration.
Evolution and origin of merlin, the product of the Neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) tumor-suppressor gene

The overall similarity among the primary and secondary structures of all merlin proteins and the conservation of several functionally important residues suggest a universal role for merlin in a wide range of metazoa.
Molecular phylogeny of Palaearctic genera of Gomphocerinae grasshoppers (Orthoptera, Acrididae)
- A. Bugrov, O. Novikova, V. Mayorov, L. Adkison, A. Blinov
- 2 November 2005
Molecular phylogenetic methods were used to examine morphologically based hypotheses concerning the taxonomic structure and relationships of the grasshopper subfamily Gomphocerinae and two tribes were distinguished – GomPHocerini and Stenobothrini.
Convergent Evolution of Ribonuclease H in LTR Retrotransposons and Retroviruses

The convergent resemblance of Tat LTR retrotransposons and retroviruses may indicate similar selection pressures acting on these diverse groups of elements and reveal potential evolutionary constraints on their structure.
