Phylogenetic relationships within the polyopisthocotylean monogeneans (Platyhelminthes) inferred from partial 28S rDNA sequences.
Molecular evolution and quantitative variation for chemosensory behaviour in the nematode genus Caenorhabditis
The results suggest that C. remanei may be a more suitable subject for ecological and evolutionary genetic studies than C. elegans, and shows that the G‐protein ODR‐3 plays an important role in chemosensory avoidance behaviour and identifies orthologues of odr‐3 in C. briggsae and C.Remanei.
Evolutionary rates and centrality in the yeast gene regulatory network
The position of a gene within the transcription network affects the rate of protein evolution such that more central transcription factors tend to evolve faster, and the effect of gene position is dependant on the function of the specific network under study.
Molecular hyperdiversity and evolution in very large populations
This work recommends how best to exploit hyperdiverse populations for analysis, for example, in quantifying the impact of noncrossover recombination in genomes and for determining the identity and micro‐evolutionary selective pressures on noncoding regulatory elements.
Comparison of ribosomal DNA sequences of Lamellodiscus spp. (monogenea, diplectanidae) parasitising Pagellus (sparidae, teleostei) in the North Mediterranean Sea: species divergence and…
Full-genome evolutionary histories of selfing, splitting, and selection in Caenorhabditis.
Analysis of functional mutations indicates that genomic context, owing to selection that acts on long linkage blocks, is a more important driver of population variation than are the functional attributes of the individually encoded genes.

This work characterize sequence variation for 20 nuclear loci to investigate how C. japonica's life history shapes nucleotide diversity, and proposes that its specialist host association contributes to a smaller effective population size and lower genetic variation than host generalist Caenorhabditis species with outbreeding reproductive modes.

TFs are illustrated that TFs are not as highly constrained as commonly thought and suggest that the role of divergence in developmental regulatory genes during the evolution of gene regulatory networks requires further attention.

The abundance and species richness of Caenorhabditis nematodes is high in a Neotropical rainforest habitat that is subject to minimal human interference, and microhabitat preferences overlap for different local species, although global distributions include both cosmopolitan and geographically restricted groups.

Phylogenetic analysis supports the view that the Fgf8/17/18-subfamily expanded during the ray-fin fish genome duplication, and direct comparison of stickleback and zebrafish embryonic expression patterns of f gf8 co-orthologs suggested lineage-specific independent subfunction partitioning and the acquisition or the loss of ortholog functions.
