A revision of Sinaspideretes wimani Young & Chow, 1953 (Testudines: Cryptodira: Trionychoidae) from the Jurassic of the Sichuan Basin, China
The re-examination of the carapace and further preparation of the plastron of the holotype of S. wimani revealed a number of important characters which clearly exclude this taxon from both Trionychidae and Carettochelyidae, but unite it with the primitive trionychoid Yehguia tatsuensis.
The First Soft-Shelled Turtle from the Jehol Biota of China
High levels of homoplasy make the phylogenetic relationships of the new taxon difficult to assess, and the possibility therefore exists that Perochelys lamadongensis either represents a stem or a crown trionychid.
New material of Jiangxichelys ganzhouensis Tong & Mo, 2010 (Testudines: Cryptodira: Nanhsiungchelyidae) and its phylogenetic and palaeogeographical implications
The new material reveals more similarities between J. ganzhouensis and ‘Zangerlia’ neimongolensis; the latter species is included in the genus Jiangxichelys, and provides new evidence for weak physical barriers against the dispersal of land vertebrates between southern China and northern China and Mongolia during latest Cretaceous times.
Complete mitochondrial genome of the Olympia oyster Ostrea lurida (Bivalvia, Ostreidae)
The observations of the evolutionary pattern of startcodon usage among the three congeneric oysters indicate that variation in start codon usage is species-correlated rather than gene-cor related, and to some extent, bears useful phylogenetic information.
Development of twenty-six microsatellite loci from Crassostreahongkongensis and cross-species amplification in two closely related species
Twenty-six new microsatellite markers were developed for the Hong Kong oyster, Crassostrea hongkongensis, from an enriched genomic library. All these loci were polymorphic, with a mean allelic

This set of microsatellite loci developed from the Hong Kong oyster with a partial genomic library enriched for tandem repeat sequences of (CA)12, (GA)12 would be useful for stock and genetic studies in C. hongkongensis.
