Pattern of diversity in the genomic region near the maize domestication gene tb1.
TLDR
The data raise the possibility that maize-like tb1 haplotypes are present in extant teosinte populations, and suggest a model of t b1 gene regulation that differs from traditional views of how plant gene expression is controlled. Expand
Gene loss and movement in the maize genome.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that many genes in these species have moved to new chromosomal locations in the last 50 million years or less, most as single gene events that did not dramatically alter gene structure. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Pholadoidea Lamarck, 1809 supports a single origin for xylotrophy (wood feeding) and xylotrophic bacterial endosymbiosis in Bivalvia.
TLDR
It is provided that xylotrophy has arisen just once in Bivalvia in a single wood-feeding bivalve lineage that subsequently diversified into distinct shallow- and deep-water branches, both of which have been broadly successful in colonizing the world's oceans. Expand
A MOLECULAR ANALYSIS OF THE EUGLENOPHYTES USING SSU RDNA
TLDR
Using small subunit (SSU) rDNA data to generate a phylogenetic framework for the genera Euglena, Phacus, Lepocinclis, Astasia, and Khawkinea, the need for a revision in the taxonomy of some of these genera was demonstrated. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of phagotrophic, photomorphic and osmotrophic euglenoids by using the nuclear 18S rDNA sequence.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of 35 strains carried out using the SSU rDNA suggest that neither the Euglenales nor the Eutreptiales form a monophyletic lineage, thus questioning currently available classifications. Expand
A Molecular Study of Euglenoid Phylogeny using Small Subunit rDNA
TLDR
This work has added molecular characters from the Small Subunit (SSU) rDNA to generate an overall phylogenetic framework for the euglenoids, a distinct monophyletic clade with phagotrophic members diverging prior to the phototrophic and osmotrophicMembers. Expand
Taxon-rich multigene phylogeny of the photosynthetic euglenoids (Euglenophyceae)
TLDR
To establish taxonomy and understand phylogenetic relationships among strains and species of the photosynthetic euglenoids, phylogenetic analyses based on a four gene sequence dataset from 343 taxa from 343Taxa were performed. Expand
Sequence, Regulation, and Evolution of the Maize 22-kD α Zein Gene Family
TLDR
Gene amplification appears to be in blocks of genes explaining the rapid and compact expansion of the cluster during the evolution of maize. Expand
PHYLOGENY OF THE EUGLENALES BASED UPON COMBINED SSU AND LSU RDNA SEQUENCE COMPARISONS AND DESCRIPTION OF DISCOPLASTIS GEN. NOV. (EUGLENOPHYTA) 1
TLDR
This study demonstrated that increased taxon sampling, multiple genes, and combined data sets provided increased support for internal nodes on the euglenoid phylogenetic tree and resolved relationships among the major genera in the photosynthetic eUGlenoid lineage. Expand
Reconstructing euglenoid evolutionary relationships using three genes: nuclear SSU and LSU, and chloroplast SSU rDNA sequences and the description of Euglenaria gen. nov. (Euglenophyta).
TLDR
Combining datasets resolved the relationships among ten genera of photosynthetic euglenoids by using Maximum Likelihood and Bayesian analyses of three genes, nuclear SSU and LSU rDNA, and chloroplast SSU (cpSSU) rDNA. Expand
