Phylogeny and polyploidy: resolving the classification of cyprinine fishes (Teleostei: Cypriniformes).
The hexaploid African Labeobarbus & allies and Western Asian Capoeta are likely derived from two independent hybridization events between their respective maternal tetraploid ancestors and Cyprinion.
Mitogenomic Evolution and Interrelationships of the Cypriniformes (Actinopterygii: Ostariophysi): The First Evidence Toward Resolution of Higher-Level Relationships of the World’s Largest Freshwater
The present study represents the first attempt toward resolution of the higher-level relationships of the world’s largest freshwater-fish clade based on whole mitochondrial genome sequences from 53 cypriniforms plus 6 outgroups, and it is advocated that RY-coding, which takes only transversions into account, effectively removes this likely “noise” from the data set and avoids the apparent lack of signal by retaining all available positions in the dataSet.

Systematics of the subfamily Danioninae (Teleostei: Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae).
The phylogenetic relationships of the Danioninae are examined and the resulting topology supports some conclusions drawn by recent studies on the group and certain portions of the traditional classification, but the results also contradict key aspects of theTraditional classification.
Mitochondrial Genomics of Ostariophysan Fishes: Perspectives on Phylogeny and Biogeography
This study reports the complete mitochondrial DNA sequences for eleven ostariophysan fishes and the results of phylogenetic analyses including these species plus four other ostariophysicalan and nine non-ostariophysans teleostean fishes, and suggests a Pangean origin of otophysans.
Application of single nucleotide polymorphisms to non‐model species: a technical review
A variety of SNP discovery and genotyping studies in ecology and evolution are summarized and the most efficient approaches to SNP discovery will depend on the research questions that the markers are to resolve as well as the focal species.
Evolutionary history of Otophysi (Teleostei), a major clade of the modern freshwater fishes: Pangaean origin and Mesozoic radiation
The present timetree demonstrates that survival of the ancestral lineages through the two consecutive mass extinctions on Pangaea, and subsequent radiations during the Jurassic through early Cretaceous shaped the modern familial diversity of otophysans.
Evidence from mitochondrial genomics supports the lower Mesozoic of South Asia as the time and place of basal divergence of cypriniform fishes (Actinopterygii: Ostariophysi)
The most likely candidate for the initial geographical range of Order Cypriniformes to be the south-eastern area of Mesozoic Laurasia (present-day southern Asia, excluding the Indian subcontinent) is considered.
Complete nucleotide sequence of Japanese flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus) mitochondrial genome: structural properties and cue for resolving teleostean relationships.
The flounder mitochondrial genome does not show an indication of evolutionary rate difference among teleosts leading to difficulty in phylogenetic analyses, and the data is useful for future evolutionary studies dealing with higher teleostean fishes.
