Waves of genomic hitchhikers shed light on the evolution of gamebirds (Aves: Galliformes)
TLDR
The TinT information concerning relative fixation times of CR1 subtypes enabled us to efficiently investigate gamebird phylogeny and to reconstruct an unambiguous tree topology, and should provide a useful tool for investigations in other taxonomic groups as well.
Polyethylenimine, a cost-effective transfection reagent
TLDR
The non-modified PEI reagent was used to optimize transfection protocols for different cell-lines and was able to transiently transfect a number of cell- lines up to 40–90%.
A NEW TRITYLODONTID FROM THE UPPER JURASSIC SHISHUGOU FORMATION OF THE JUNGGAR BASIN (XINJIANG, NW CHINA)
Abstract A new tritylodontid cynodont, Bienotheroides ultimus sp. nov., is described from the Upper Jurassic Shishugou Formation of Jiangjunmiao in the northeastern Junggar Basin of Xinjiang (NW
A new Xinjiangchelyid turtle (Testudines, Eucryptodira) from the Jurassic Qigu Formation of the southern Junggar Basin, Xinjiang, north‐west China
TLDR
A new eucryptodiran turtle from the Upper Jurassic Qigu Formation of the southern Junggar Basin (north‐west China) is described and a new phylogenetic analysis of the in‐group phylogeny of the Xinjiangchelyidae is proposed and discussed, resulting in a new classification of the family.
A BASAL MIXOSAURID ICHTHYOSAUR FROM THE MIDDLE TRIASSIC OF CHINA
TLDR
The holotype of Mixosaurus mao- taiensis, which is very fragmentary and has no taxonomic value at the species level, is found to be undiagnostic, and hence the lately introduced, monospecific genus name for this species needs to be abandoned.
AN ALMOST COMPLETE JUVENILE SPECIMEN OF THE CHELONIID TURTLE CTENOCHELYS STENOPORUS ( HAY, 1905 ) FROM THE UPPER CRETACEOUS NIOBRARA FORMATION OF KANSAS, USA
TLDR
A new, unusually well-preserved juvenile specimen of Ctenochelys stenoporus from the Niobrara Formation has come apart at its sutures and all bones of the braincase and ear region are preserved three-dimensionally, allowing a detailed reconstruction of the important brain structures of a basal juvenile cheloniid turtle.
The skull of a large Lower Triassic ichthyosaur from Spitzbergen and its implications for the origin of the Ichthyosauria
An incomplete ichthyosaur skull from the Lower Triassic (Spathian) Sticky Keep Formation of Spitzbergen is one of the earliest ichthyosaurs known and by far the largest of the most basal
The otic capsule of the Middle Triassic ichthyosaur Mixosaurus from Monte San Giorgio (Switzerland): New evidence on the braincase structure of basal ichthyosaurs
Abstract.For the first time, the otic capsule (proötic and opisthotic) of a Triassic ichthyosaur is described, based on a specimen of Mixosaurus cf. cornalianus from the Grenzbitumenzone of Monte San
