Distribution of non-telomeric sites of the (TTAGGG)n telomeric sequence in vertebrate chromosomes
The intrachromosomal distribution of non-telomeric sites of the (TTAGGG)n telomeric repeat was determined for 100 vertebrate species. The most common non-telomeric location of this sequence was inExpand

Diversification among New World leaf-nosed bats : an evolutionary hypothesis and classification inferred from digenomic congruence of DNA sequence /
We assessed phylogenetic relationships among 48 of 53 genera of phyllostomid bats based on mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequence data encompassing three adjacent genes (12S rRNA, tRNA^a^} 16S rRNA). WeExpand

All-Male Asexuality: Origin and Maintenance of Androgenesis in the Asian Clam Corbicula
Abstract Androgenesis is a rare form of asexual male reproduction found in disparate taxa across the Tree of Life. Phylogenetic analyses of mitochondrial genes suggest that androgenesis has arisenExpand
