The neighbor-joining method: a new method for reconstructing phylogenetic trees.
A new method called the neighbor-joining method is proposed for reconstructing phylogenetic trees from evolutionary distance data. The principle of this method is to find pairs of operationalExpand

Denisova admixture and the first modern human dispersals into Southeast Asia and Oceania.
It has recently been shown that ancestors of New Guineans and Bougainville Islanders have inherited a proportion of their ancestry from Denisovans, an archaic hominin group from Siberia. However,Expand

Synonymous mutations in the human dopamine receptor D2 (DRD2) affect mRNA stability and synthesis of the receptor.
Although changes in nucleotide sequence affecting the composition and the structure of proteins are well known, functional changes resulting from nucleotide substitutions cannot always be inferredExpand

α1,3‐Fucoslytransferase IX (Fuc‐TIX) is very highly conserved between human and mouse; molecular cloning, characterization and tissue distribution of human Fuc‐TIX
The amino acid sequence of Fuc‐TIX is very highly conserved between mouse and human. The number of non‐synonymous nucleotide substitutions of the Fuc‐TIX gene between human and mouse was strikinglyExpand

Mitochondrial DNA sequence phylogeny of 4 populations of the widely distributed cynomolgus macaque (Macaca fascicularis fascicularis).
We studied the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) polymorphism of 304 Macaca fascicularis fascicularis (M. f. fascicularis) individuals, representative of 4 cynomolgus macaque populations (Indochina,Expand

Extensive polymorphism of ABO blood group gene: three major lineages of the alleles for the common ABO phenotypes
Polymorphism of the ABO blood group gene was investigated in 262 healthy Japanese donors by a polymerase chain reactions-single-strand conformation polymorphism (PCR-SSCP) method, and 13 differentExpand
