  • 1 April 1999
Animal mitochondrial DNA is a small, extrachromosomal genome, typically approximately 16 kb in size. With few exceptions, all animal mitochondrial genomes contain the same 37 genes: two for rRNAs, 13Expand

The Draft Genome of Ciona intestinalis: Insights into Chordate and Vertebrate Origins
The first chordates appear in the fossil record at the time of the Cambrian explosion, nearly 550 million years ago. The modern ascidian tadpole represents a plausible approximation to theseExpand

The Ecoresponsive Genome of Daphnia pulex
The Daphnia genome reveals a multitude of genes and shows adaptation through gene family expansions. We describe the draft genome of the microcrustacean Daphnia pulex, which is only 200 megabases andExpand

Analysis of 81 genes from 64 plastid genomes resolves relationships in angiosperms and identifies genome-scale evolutionary patterns
Angiosperms are the largest and most successful clade of land plants with >250,000 species distributed in nearly every terrestrial habitat. Many phylogenetic studies have been based on DNA sequencesExpand

Two Rounds of Whole Genome Duplication in the Ancestral Vertebrate
The hypothesis that the relatively large and complex vertebrate genome was created by two ancient, whole genome duplications has been hotly debated, but remains unresolved. We reconstructed theExpand

The Physcomitrella Genome Reveals Evolutionary Insights into the Conquest of Land by Plants
We report the draft genome sequence of the model moss Physcomitrella patens and compare its features with those of flowering plants, from which it is separated by more than 400 million years, andExpand

Phytophthora Genome Sequences Uncover Evolutionary Origins and Mechanisms of Pathogenesis
Draft genome sequences have been determined for the soybean pathogen Phytophthora sojae and the sudden oak death pathogen Phytophthora ramorum. Oömycetes such as these Phytophthora species share theExpand

Gene translocation links insects and crustaceans
The evolutionary relationships among the four major lineages of arthropods remain controversial, despite extensive study. We report here a derived gene rearrangement common to insects and crustaceansExpand

Draft genome sequence and genetic transformation of the oleaginous alga Nannochloropis gaditana
The potential use of algae in biofuels applications is receiving significant attention. However, none of the current algal model species are competitive production strains. Here we present a draftExpand
