Phylogeny and new intrageneric classification of Allium (Alliaceae) based on nuclear ribosomal DNA its sequences
TLDR
The internal transcribed spacer region of nuclear ribosomal DNA was sequenced from 195 representative species of Allium, two species of Nothoscordum, and one species each of Ipheion, Dichelostemma, and Tulbaghia to form a new classification of genus Allium consisting of 15 monophyletic subgenera.

The complete DNA sequence and analysis of the large virulence plasmid of Escherichia coli O157:H7.
TLDR
In the complete sequence of pO157, the large virulence plasmid of EHEC strain O157:H7 EDL 933, insights were obtained from patterns of DNA composition as well as the pathogenic and 'housekeeping' gene segments. Expand

TLDR
This recombinant PCR approach, taking into account the +A bases added by several Taq DNA polymerases, will also be useful with other marker regions used in molecular phylogenetics. Expand
Identification and Dynamics of Two Classes of Aurora-Like Kinases in Arabidopsis and Other Plantsw⃞
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis of available Aurora sequences from different eukaryotic origins suggests that, although a plant Aurora gene has been duplicated early in the evolution of plants, the paralogs nevertheless maintained a role in cell cycle–related signal transduction pathways. Expand
Phylogeographic analyses and paleodistribution modeling indicate pleistocene in situ survival of Hordeum species (Poaceae) in southern Patagonia without genetic or spatial restriction.
Although many phylogeographic studies have been conducted to analyze the impact of the ice age on species history of Northern Hemisphere mountain plants, such studies are nearly absent for plants ofExpand
The considerable genome size variation of Hordeum species (poaceae) is linked to phylogeny, life form, ecology, and speciation rates.
TLDR
The analysis of ancestral genome sizes on the base of the phylogeny of the genus revealed lineages with decreasing and with increasing genome sizes, including H. marinum populations from Western Europe but were not significant within two species from South America. Expand
The complete DNA sequence and analysis of R27, a large IncHI plasmid from Salmonella typhi that is temperature sensitive for transfer.
TLDR
The genes responsible for conjugation and plasmid maintenance have been identified and mechanisms responsible for thermosensitive transfer are discussed. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of Hordeum (Poaceae) as inferred by nuclear rDNA ITS sequences.

  • 1 November 2004
Hordeum (Poaceae, Triticeae) occurs with 31 species worldwide in temperate regions, with the exception of Australasia. About 50% of the species are polyploids (4x, 6x) or occur as di- and polyploidExpand
Data Congruence and Phylogeny of the Papaveraceae s.l. Based on Four Data Sets: atpB and rbcL Sequences, trnK Restriction Sites, and Morphological Characters
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of various combinations of atpB and rbcL sequence data, trnK restriction sites, and morphological characters of taxa representing the Papaveraceae s.l. remain monophyletic after the exclusion of Pteridophyl- lum and Fumariaceae. Expand
A chloroplast genealogy of myrmecophytic Macaranga species (Euphorbiaceae) in Southeast Asia reveals hybridization, vicariance and long‐distance dispersals
TLDR
A large‐scale chloroplast genealogy is constructed based on DNA sequence data from the noncoding ccmp2, ccmp6, and atpB‐rbcL regions for 144 individuals from 41 Macaranga species, covering all major evolutionary lineages within the three sections that contain myrmecophytes. Expand
