Phylogeny of seed plants based on all three genomic compartments: extant gymnosperms are monophyletic and Gnetales' closest relatives are conifers.
TLDR
The molecular phylogeny strongly conflicts with current interpretations of seed plant morphology, and implies that many similarities between gnetophytes and angiosperms were independently derived, whereas other characters could emerge as synapomorphies for an expanded conifer group including Gnetales.
Effects of RNA editing and gene processing on phylogenetic reconstruction.
TLDR
It is argued that editing will have little or no effect on DNA-based phylogenetic reconstruction because it is an intrinsic transcriptional process that does not affect the historical information in the DNA sequence.
Investigating Emergent Contaminants --Pharmaceutical impacts and possible solutions--
TLDR
The purpose of this paper is to analyze the current disposal practices of unused/unwanted or expired pharmaceutical products, their studied environmental impacts, and some possible solutions.
