Repeatability of clades as a criterion of reliability: a case study for molecular phylogeny of Acanthomorpha (Teleostei) with larger number of taxa.
Although much progress has been made recently in teleostean phylogeny, relationships among the main lineages of the higher teleosts (Acanthomorpha), containing more than 60% of all fish species,Expand

Genome dynamics and chromosomal localization of the non-LTR retrotransposons Rex1 and Rex3 in Antarctic fish
The non-long terminal repeat retrotransposons Rex1 and Rex3 were identified in 13 species of Antarctic fishes from five families of the suborder Notothenioidei. Partial reverse transcriptase geneExpand

Phylogeny of Antarctic dragonfishes (Bathydraconidae, Notothenioidei, Teleostei) and related families based on their anatomy and two mitochondrial genes.
Although Antarctic teleosts of the suborder Notothenioidei are well studied, the status of some families remains unclear because of limited taxonomic sampling and sometimes poor statistical supportExpand

Conservation of the 5S-bearing chromosome pair and co-localization with major rDNA clusters in five species of Astyanax (Pisces, Characidae)
Major and 5S ribosomal genes have been localized in chromosomes from five fish species, genus Astyanax, using in situ hybridization (FISH) with 28S and 5S rDNA probes. In situ signals for the majorExpand

Viability of X-autosome translocations in mammals: an epigenomic hypothesis from a rodent case-study
X-autosome translocations are highly deleterious chromosomal rearrangements due to meiotic disruption, the effects of X-inactivation on the autosome, and the necessity of maintaining differentExpand

Molecular and morphological phylogenies of the Antarctic teleostean family Nototheniidae, with emphasis on the Trematominae
Four independent molecular data sets were sequenced in order to solve longstanding phylogenetic problems among Antarctic teleosts of the family Nototheniidae. The anatomical data of Balushkin (2000)Expand

Is the Species Flock Concept Operational? The Antarctic Shelf Case
There has been a significant body of literature on species flock definition but not so much about practical means to appraise them. We here apply the five criteria of Eastman and McCune for detectingExpand

Phylogeny of the Channichthyidae (Notothenioidei, Teleostei) Based on Two Mitochondrial Genes
The family Channichthyidae contains 11 genera and 15 species [1] and is considered monophyletic [2,3, 4, 5]. Interrelationships of channichthyids were first investigated by Iwami [2] based onExpand

Molecular support for a rapid cladogenesis of the woodpecker clade Malarpicini, with further insights into the genus Picus (Piciformes: Picinae).
Previous studies have suggested that the woodpecker genus Picus (Aves: Picidae) may not be monophyletic. In order to evaluate this hypothesis, we analyzed DNA sequences from all but two species ofExpand

A high-resolution map of the Nile tilapia genome: a resource for studying cichlids and other percomorphs
BackgroundThe Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) is the second most farmed fish species worldwide. It is also an important model for studies of fish physiology, particularly because of its broadExpand
