HybPiper: Extracting coding sequence and introns for phylogenetics from high-throughput sequencing reads using target enrichment1
HybPiper is developed as a user-friendly platform for assembly of gene regions, extraction of exon and intron sequences, and identification of paralogous gene copies in Artocarpus. Expand
Moss diversity: A molecular phylogenetic analysis of genera
This study presents phylogenetic and molecular phylogenetic diversity analyses of moss taxa from a total of 655 genera of mosses, and highlights the possible non-monophyly of many taxonomic families, particularly in the haplolepideous and pleurocarpous mosses. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships among the Mosses Based on Heterogeneous Bayesian Analysis of Multiple Genes from Multiple Genomic Compartments
The phylogenetic hypothesis for morphological evolution in mosses include a pseudopodium has arisen independently in Sphagnum and Andreaea, and the mucilage hairs of Andreaeobryum and Takakia are non-homologous, and that stomata were absent in the ancestor of all mosses. Expand
Maximum-likelihood models for mapping genetic markers showing segregation distortion. 2. F2 populations
It is shown that dominant markers provide very poor information in the case of segregation distortion and, therefore, should be used with circumspection and the utility and the efficiency of a previous model developed for dominant markers are discussed. Expand
Functional gene losses occur with minimal size reduction in the plastid genome of the parasitic liverwort Aneura mirabilis.
A pattern of genome evolution congruent with functional gene losses in parasitic angiosperms is observed but it is suggested that A. mirabilis' plastid genome represents a genome in the early stages of decay following the relaxation of selection pressures. Expand
Evolution of the Major Moss Lineages: Phylogenetic Analyses Based on Multiple Gene Sequences and Morphology
Combining morphological and molecular data in the analyses showed that mosses, including Sphagnum, Takakia, Andreaea and Andreaeobryum, form a monophyletic group, provided improved resolution of higher level relationships, and further insight into evolutionary patterns in morphology. Expand
The Bryophyta (Mosses): Systematic and Evolutionary Inferences from an rps4 Gene (cpDNA) Phylogeny.
This hypothesis suggests that early in the evolution of the Arthrodonteae, two major lineages diverged, with opposite and alternate peristomes, respectively. Expand
