This work used dispersal-vicariance analyses and molecular timetrees to show that two species-rich frog groups, Microhylidae and Natatanura, display congruent patterns of spatial and temporal diversification among Gondwanan plates in the Late Cretaceous, long after the presumed major tectonic break up events.

The results indicated that the subset of aromatic rice varieties analyzed in the present study is probably derived from a single land race.
Genetic evidence from Indian red jungle fowl corroborates multiple domestication of modern day chicken
Compared to the commonly held view that RJF and domestic birds hybridize in nature, the present study shows that G. g.
Microsatellite flanking region similarities among different loci within insect species
This meta‐analysis was conducted on 32 insect species and demonstrated strong differences in the abundance of microsatellites among species and that microsatellite families were significantly more often associated with transposable elements – or their remnants – than unique micros satellite sequences.
Microsatellites in the silkworm, Bombyx mori: abundance, polymorphism, and strain characterization.
The co-dominant inheritance of microsatellite markers was demonstrated in F1 offspring and can be expected to enhance the power and resolution of genome analysis in silkworm.

It is shown that silkmoths experience faster‐Z evolution, but unlike in birds and snakes, the faster-Z effect appears to be attributable to more efficient positive selection, suggesting that female heterogamy alone is unlikely to explain the reduced efficacy of selection on vertebrate Z chromosomes.
Genetic diversity and relationships in mulberry (genus Morus) as revealed by RAPD and ISSR marker assays

RAPD and ISSR markers are suggested to be useful for mulberry genetic diversity analysis and germplasm characterization, and that putative species-specific markers may be obtained which can be converted to SCARs after further studies.
Genetic characterization of the Indian cattle breeds, Ongole and Deoni (Bos indicus), using microsatellite markers – a preliminary study

This preliminary study shows that microsatellite markers are useful in distinguishing the two zebu breeds namely, Ongole and Deoni, and further studies of other zebU breeds using many micros satellite loci with larger sample sizes can reveal the genetic relationships of Indian breeds.
Genetic characterization of the silkworm Bombyx mori by simple sequence repeat (SSR)-anchored PCR
The results suggest that the ISSR-PCR method is potentially useful for genetic fingerprinting of silkworm genotypes and as a mapping tool in the silkworm.
