Phylogeny of Decapoda using two nuclear protein-coding genes: origin and evolution of the Reptantia.
TLDR
The first application of two nuclear protein-coding genes, phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase and sodium-potassium ATPase alpha-subunit, to reconstruct the phylogeny of major infraorders within Decapoda is presented and it is proposed that nuclear Protein-Coding genes should constitute core markers for future phylogenetic studies of decapods, especially for higher systematics.

TLDR
DNA sequences of two nuclear protein-coding genes, phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase and sodium-potassium ATPase alpha-subunit, were determined from 37 penaeoid genera to reconstruct the evolutionary relationships and to estimate divergence ages of the penaeid shrimps. Expand
Refuting the six‐genus classification of Penaeus s.l. (Dendrobranchiata, Penaeidae): a combined analysis of mitochondrial and nuclear genes
TLDR
Refuting the six‐genus classification of Penaeus s.l. (Dendrobranchiata, Penaeidae) is refuted in a combined analysis of mitochondrial and nuclear genes. Expand
The historical biogeography of groupers: Clade diversification patterns and processes.
TLDR
The findings reveal that both biological and geographical factors have driven grouper diversification and underscore the importance of scrutinizing group-specific patterns to better understand reef fish evolution. Expand
Genetic differentiation, hybridization and adaptive divergence in two subspecies of the acorn barnacle Tetraclita japonica in the northwestern Pacific
TLDR
The genetic differentiation between the subspecies does not deviate from neutral expectation, suggesting that the oceanographic pattern which restricts larval dispersal is a more important factor than divergent selection in maintaining genetic and phenotypic differentiation. Expand
Penaeid shrimp genome provides insights into benthic adaptation and frequent molting
TLDR
The authors provide a reference genome assembly, and show that gene expansion is involved in the regulation of frequent molting as well as benthic adaptation of the shrimp. Expand
Verification of the cryptic species Penaeus pulchricaudatus in the commercially important kuruma shrimp P. japonicus (Decapoda : Penaeidae) using molecular taxonomy
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis shows that P. japonicus is genetically homogeneous yet P. pulchricaudatus exhibits a strong phylogeographical structure, supporting the Lessepsian migration hypothesis and the presence of two closely related cryptic species in this species complex provides important insights into fishery management and aquaculture development. Expand
Lack of mtDNA and morphological differentiation between two acorn barnacles Tetraclita japonica and T. formosana differing in parietes colours and geographical distribution
TLDR
The data suggest that the two presently recognized species probably represent two colour morphotypes of the same species exhibiting different geographical distribution, which might be a result of either phenotypic plasticity adaptive to environmental variables or genetic hitchhiking of local adaptive genotypes. Expand
Validation of microsatellite multiplexes for parentage analysis and species discrimination in two hybridizing species of coral reef fish (Plectropomus spp., Serranidae)
TLDR
A novel framework to assess the suitability of microsatellite datasets for parentage analysis and species discrimination in two closely related species of coral reef fish, Plectropomus leopardus and P. maculatus (Serranidae). Expand
