Mitochondrial DNA and two perspectives on evolutionary genetics
This essay reviews comparative studies of animal mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), with emphasis on findings made and ideas developed at Berkeley. It argues that such studies are bringing together twoExpand

Genetic variation and phylogeography of central Asian and other house mice, including a major new mitochondrial lineage in Yemen.
The mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) control region and flanking tRNAs were sequenced from 76 mice collected at 60 localities extending from Egypt through Turkey, Yemen, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, andExpand

House Mice as Models in Systematic Biology
We evaluated the house mouse (Mus musculus species complex) and its laboratory descendents as models for three aspects of systematic biology: hybrid zone biology, chromosomal evolution andExpand

ABRUPT CLINE FOR SEX CHROMOSOMES IN A HYBRID ZONE BETWEEN TWO SPECIES OF MICE
We compared the patterns of movement of sex chromosomal and autosomal loci along a 160 km transect across a zone of hybridization between M. domesticus and M. musculus in southern Germany and westernExpand

Mitochondrial DNA evolution in mice.
This study extends knowledge of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) diversity in mice to include 208 animals belonging to eight species in the subgenus Mus. Highly purified mtDNA from each has been subjectedExpand

Flow of mitochondrial DNA across a species boundary.
Restriction analysis shows that wild Scandinavian mice belonging to the species Mus musculus contain the mitochondrial DNA of a neighboring species, M. domesticus. This demonstration results fromExpand

Mitochondrial DNA sequence diversity and the colonization of Scandinavia by house mice from East Holstein
Abstract Restriction analysis had revealed only Mus domesticus mtDNA in house mouse populations in northern Denmark, Sweden, and Finland, where the nuclear genomes are Mus musculus. The goals of theExpand

SPECIATION BY POLYPLOIDY IN TREEFROGS: MULTIPLE ORIGINS OF THE TETRAPLOID, HYLA VERSICOLOR
Speciation by polyploidy is rare in animals, yet, in vertebrates, there is a disproportionate concentration of polyploid species in anuran amphibians. Sequences from the cytochrome b gene of theExpand
