The performance of the Congruence Among Distance Matrices (CADM) test in phylogenetic analysis
BackgroundCADM is a statistical test used to estimate the level of Congruence Among Distance Matrices. It has been shown in previous studies to have a correct rate of type I error and good power whenExpand

Retrieving a mitogenomic mammal tree using composite taxa.
Supermatrices are often characterized by a large amount of missing data. One possible approach to minimize such missing data is to create composite taxa. These taxa are formed by sampling sequencesExpand

Prolonged copulation and the internal dynamics of sperm transfer in the water strider Aquarius remigis
Copulations lasting much longer than required to effect insemination are common throughout the Insecta, but their adaptive significance remains obscure. We address the hypothesis that prolongedExpand

Fine-scale genetic structure and dispersal in Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) within Alberta, Canada
Although mammals are typically characterized by male-biased dispersal, field studies of lynx conflict as to whether dispersal is male-biased or lacks sex-bias. To resolve this issue we dissectExpand

The use and validity of composite taxa in phylogenetic analysis.
In phylogenetic analysis, one possible approach to minimize missing data in DNA supermatrices consists in sampling sequences from different species to obtain a complete sequence for all genesExpand

An Application of Supertree Methods to Mammalian Mitogenomic Sequences
Two different approaches can be used in phylogenomics: combined or separate analysis. In the first approach, different datasets are combined in a concatenated supermatrix. In the second, datasets areExpand

'Nature-inspired' drug-protein complexes as inhibitors of Aβ aggregation
Protein–protein interactions are a regulatory mechanism for a number of physiological and pathological cellular processes. Neurodegenerative diseases, such as AD (Alzheimer’s disease), are associatedExpand

Soil-eating behavior of the hybrid macaques of Kowloon
This study reports on 142 incidences of geophagy observed over 700 hours in 1995 amongst the hybrid macaques of Kowloon. These synanthropic monkeys live in the southern region of the Peninsula alongExpand
