Phylogeny and biogeography of African Murinae based on mitochondrial and nuclear gene sequences, with a new tribal classification of the subfamily
BackgroundWithin the subfamily Murinae, African murines represent 25% of species biodiversity, making this group ideal for detailed studies of the patterns and timing of diversification of theExpand

L1 (LINE-1) retrotransposon evolution and amplification in recent human history.
L1 (LINE-1) elements constitute a large family of mammalian retrotransposons that have been replicating and evolving in mammals for more than 100 Myr and now compose 20% or more of the DNA of someExpand

Multiple molecular evidences for a living mammalian fossil
Laonastes aenigmamus is an enigmatic rodent first described in 2005. Molecular and morphological data suggested that it is the sole representative of a new mammalian family, the Laonastidae, and aExpand

Phylogeny of the genus Apodemus with a special emphasis on the subgenus Sylvaemus using the nuclear IRBP gene and two mitochondrial markers: cytochrome b and 12S rRNA.
Phylogenetic relationships among 17 extant species of Murinae, with special reference to the genus Apodemus, were investigated using sequence data from the nuclear protein-coding gene IRBP (15Expand

Arrival and diversification of caviomorph rodents and platyrrhine primates in South America.
Platyrrhine primates and caviomorph rodents are clades of mammals that colonized South America during its period of isolation from the other continents, between 100 and 3 million years ago (Mya).Expand

Systematics and evolution of the subfamily Gerbillinae (Mammalia, Rodentia, Muridae).
Although they represent a quarter of the mammalian species, the evolutionary relationships among as well as within, the main murid lineages are still controversial. The subfamily Gerbillinae is noExpand

The evolutionary radiation of Arvicolinae rodents (voles and lemmings): relative contribution of nuclear and mitochondrial DNA phylogenies
BackgroundMitochondrial and nuclear genes have generally been employed for different purposes in molecular systematics, the former to resolve relationships within recently evolved groups and theExpand

Morphological diversity of Old World rats and mice (Rodentia, Muridae) mandible in relation with phylogeny and adaptation
The respective roles of the phylogenetic and ecological components in an adaptive radiation are tested on a sample of Old World rats and mice (Muridae, Murinae). Phylogeny was established on nuclearExpand

Molecular phylogeny of the genus Mus (Rodentia: Murinae) based on mitochondrial and nuclear data
The genus Mus encompasses at least 38 species divided into four subgenera: Mus, Pyromys, Nannomys and Co-elomys. The subgenus Mus, which comprises the house mouse and related species, is by far theExpand

Molecular phylogeny of the African pygmy mice, subgenus Nannomys (Rodentia, Murinae, Mus): implications for chromosomal evolution.
Molecular phylogenies based on sequences of mitochondrial cytochrome b and nuclear IRBP genes are assessed on a comprehensive taxonomic sampling of African pygmy mice (subgenus Nannomys of the genusExpand
