Whole-genome analyses resolve early branches in the tree of life of modern birds
To better determine the history of modern birds, we performed a genome-scale phylogenetic analysis of 48 species representing all orders of Neoaves using phylogenomic methods created to handleExpand

Phylogenetic relationships among modern birds (Neornithes): towards an avian tree of life
Modem perceptions of the inonophyly of avian higher taxa {modern birds, Neomiihes) and their interrelationships are the legacy uf systematic work undertaken in the 19th century. Before LlieExpand

Structural and transcriptional analysis of human papillomavirus type 16 sequences in cervical carcinoma cell lines.
We cloned and analyzed the integrated human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV-16) genomes that are present in the human cervical carcinoma cell lines SiHa and CaSki. The single HPV-16 genome in the SiHaExpand

The genomic consequences of adaptive divergence and reproductive isolation between species of manakins
The processes of adaptation and speciation are expected to shape genomic variation within and between diverging species. Here we analyze genomic heterogeneity of genetic differentiation andExpand

Why Do Phylogenomic Data Sets Yield Conflicting Trees? Data Type Influences the Avian Tree of Life more than Taxon Sampling
&NA; Phylogenomics, the use of large‐scale data matrices in phylogenetic analyses, has been viewed as the ultimate solution to the problem of resolving difficult nodes in the tree of life. However,Expand

Molecular phylogeny of the marmots (Rodentia: Sciuridae): tests of evolutionary and biogeographic hypotheses.
There are 14 species of marmots distributed across the Holarctic, and despite extensive systematic study, their phylogenetic relationships remain largely unresolved. In particular, comprehensiveExpand

True and false gharials: a nuclear gene phylogeny of crocodylia.
The phylogeny of Crocodylia offers an unusual twist on the usual molecules versus morphology story. The true gharial (Gavialis gangeticus) and the false gharial (Tomistoma schlegelii), as theirExpand

Nucleotide sequence and genome organization of biologically active proviruses of the bovine immunodeficiency-like virus.
The complete nucleotide sequences and translations of major open reading frames (ORF) of two distinct, infectious, proviral molecular clones (106 and 127) of the bovine immunodeficiency-like virusExpand

A multi-gene phylogeny of aquiline eagles (Aves: Accipitriformes) reveals extensive paraphyly at the genus level.
The phylogeny of the tribe Aquilini (eagles with fully feathered tarsi) was investigated using 4.2 kb of DNA sequence of one mitochondrial (cyt b) and three nuclear loci (RAG-1 coding region, LDHExpand

Characterization of Microsatellite DNA Loci in American Alligators
Microsatellite loci of American alligators were identified from small insert DNA libraries. The average length of microsatellites (18.4 repeats) was similar to that observed in mammals. PolymeraseExpand
