Ten new complete mitochondrial genomes of pulmonates (Mollusca: Gastropoda) and their impact on phylogenetic relationships
Despite recent efforts for increasing the taxon sampling in euthyneuran (opisthobranchs and pulmonates) molecular phylogenies, several of the deeper nodes are still uncertain, because of low support values as well as some incongruence between analyses based on complete mitochondrial genomes and those based on individual genes.

Phylogenetic relationships and evolution of pulmonate gastropods (Mollusca): new insights from increased taxon sampling.
Phylogenetic relationships among higher clades of pulmonate gastropods are reconstructed based on a data set including one nuclear marker and two mitochondrial markers for a total of 96 species, with a special emphasis on sampling the Ellobiidae, Onchidiidae, and Veronicellidae. Expand
Gene flow among Pacific harbor seals in Northern California
A fragment of the mitochondrial DNA control region was sequenced in 96 harbor seals from Northern California and phylogenetic structure was revealed in the form of two lineages, which indicates more than one California stock designation may be within California. Expand
