Characterization of the DNA from the dinoflagellate crypthecodinium cohnii and implications for nuclear organization
Although dinoflagellates are eucaryotes, they possess many bacterial nuclear traits. For this reason they are thought by some to be evolutionary intermediates. Dinoflagellates also possess some… Expand
Size of DNA determined by viscoelastic measurements: results on bacteriophages, Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coli.
Abstract A viscoelastic method is described which is particularly useful for determining the sizes of very large DNA molecules. The instrument used is a development of a Cartesian-diver… Expand

Deoxyribonucleic acid sequence organization in the genome of the dinoflagellate Crypthecodinium cohnii.
Details of the general DNA sequence organization in the dinoflagellate Crypthecodinium cohnii have been obtained by using hydroxylapatite binding experiments, S1 nuclease digestion .and electron… Expand

Evolutionary trees are usually calculated from comparisons of protein or nucleic acid sequences from present-day organisms by use of algorithms that use only the difference matrix, where the… Expand
Computer comparison of new and existing criteria for constructing evolutionary trees from sequence data
SummaryThree new methods for constructing evolutionary trees from molecular sequence data are presented. These methods are based on a theory for correcting for non-constant evolutionary rates (Klotz… Expand
