A Molecular Phylogeny of Living Primates
Comparative genomic analyses of primates offer considerable potential to define and understand the processes that mold, shape, and transform the human genome. However, primate taxonomy is bothExpand

Genetic and phylogenetic divergence of feline immunodeficiency virus in the puma (Puma concolor).
Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) is a lentivirus which causes an AIDS-like disease in domestic cats (Felis catus). A number of other felid species, including the puma (Puma concolor), carry aExpand
