AIR: A batch-oriented web program package for construction of supermatrices ready for phylogenomic analyses
We present a batch-oriented web-based program package, named AIR that allows efficient creation of multigene alignments and better assessment of evolutionary rates in sequence alignments. Expand

Phylogenomics Reshuffles the Eukaryotic Supergroups
Background Resolving the phylogenetic relationships between eukaryotes is an ongoing challenge of evolutionary biology. In recent years, the accumulation of molecular data led to a new evolutionaryExpand

Phylogenomics reveals a new ‘megagroup’ including most photosynthetic eukaryotes
Advances in molecular phylogeny of eukaryotes have suggested a tree composed of a small number of supergroups. Phylogenomics recently established the relationships between some of these largeExpand

Patterns of Rare and Abundant Marine Microbial Eukaryotes
BACKGROUND Biological communities are normally composed of a few abundant and many rare species. This pattern is particularly prominent in microbial communities, in which most constituent taxa areExpand

Infrequent marine-freshwater transitions in the microbial world.
Until recently, the evolutionary relationships between marine and freshwater microbes were unclear, but the use of molecular phylogenies is beginning to shed light on this subject. An increasingExpand

The brain-pituitary-gonad axis in male teleosts, with special emphasis on flatfish (Pleuronectiformes).
The key component regulating vertebrate puberty and sexual maturation is the endocrine system primarily effectuated along the brain-pituitary-gonad (BPG) axis. By far most investigations on theExpand

Multigene Phylogeny of Choanozoa and the Origin of Animals
Animals are evolutionarily related to fungi and to the predominantly unicellular protozoan phylum Choanozoa, together known as opisthokonts. To establish the sequence of events when animals evolvedExpand

Marine protist diversity in European coastal waters and sediments as revealed by high-throughput sequencing.
Although protists are critical components of marine ecosystems, they are still poorly characterized. Here we analysed the taxonomic diversity of planktonic and benthic protist communities collectedExpand

Phylogenetic analyses indicate that the 19'Hexanoyloxy-fucoxanthin-containing dinoflagellates have tertiary plastids of haptophyte origin.
The three anomalously pigmented dinoflagellates Gymnodinium galatheanum, Gyrodinium aureolum, and Gymnodinium breve have plastids possessing 19'-hexanoyloxy-fucoxanthin as the major carotenoid ratherExpand

Extensive dinoflagellate phylogenies indicate infrequent marine-freshwater transitions.
We have constructed extensive 18S-28S rDNA dinoflagellate phylogenies (>200 sequences for each marker) using Maximum Likelihood and Bayesian Inference to study the evolutionary relationships amongExpand
