Evolution of the B3 DNA Binding Superfamily: New Insights into REM Family Gene Diversification
Background The B3 DNA binding domain includes five families: auxin response factor (ARF), abscisic acid-insensitive3 (ABI3), high level expression of sugar inducible (HSI), related to ABI3/VP1 (RAV)Expand

The evolution of South American endemic canids: a history of rapid diversification and morphological parallelism
The origin of endemic South American canid fauna has been traditionally linked with the rise of the Isthmus of Panama, suggesting that diversification of the dog fauna on this continent occurred veryExpand

Phylogenetic analysis and a time tree for a large drosophilid data set (Diptera: Drosophilidae)
Drosophila is the genus responsible for the birth of experimental genetics, but the taxonomy of drosophilids is difficult because of the overwhelming diversity of the group. In this study, weExpand

DOES COSMOPOLITANISM RESULT FROM OVERCONSERVATIVE SYSTEMATICS? A CASE STUDY USING THE MARINE SPONGE CHONDRILLA NUCULA
The sponge species Chondrilla nucula has a simple morphology and a very wide geographical distribution. To verify whether the latter might be an artifact of the former, samples of this species wereExpand

Timing the origin of New World monkeys.
The origin of New World monkeys (Infraorder Platyrrhini) has been an extensively debated issue. In this study, we analyzed mitochondrial genomes from Cebus (Platyrrhini), Homo, Hylobates, Pan, PongoExpand

A Paleogene origin for crown passerines and the diversification of the Oscines in the New World.
In this study, we present a detailed family-level phylogenetic hypothesis for the largest avian order (Aves: Passeriformes) and an unmatched multi-calibrated, relaxed clock inference for theExpand

Molecular phylogeny of Triatomini (Hemiptera: Reduviidae: Triatominae)
BackgroundThe Triatomini and Rhodniini (Hemiptera: Reduviidae) tribes include the most diverse Chagas disease vectors; however, the phylogenetic relationships within the tribes remain obscure. ThisExpand

A molecular phylogeny for the order Clathrinida rekindles and refines Haeckel's taxonomic proposal for calcareous sponges.
Most biological groups are still longing for a phylogenetically sound taxonomic organization. In this article, we aimed to verify the consistency of morphological characters in calcarean sponges ofExpand

Birth of a new gene on the Y chromosome of Drosophila melanogaster
Significance Mammalian Y chromosomes are believed to evolve mainly through gene inactivation and loss. Drosophila Y chromosomes seem to not obey this rule, as gene gains are the dominating force inExpand
