The revised classification of eukaryotes.
This revision of the classification of eukaryotes, which updates that of Adl et al. [J. Eukaryot. Microbiol. 52 (2005) 399], retains an emphasis on the protists and incorporates changes since 2005Expand

Nearly all of eukaryotic diversity has been classified into 6 suprakingdom-level groups (supergroups) based on molecular and morphological/cell-biological evidence; these are Opisthokonta, Amoebozoa,Expand

Construction and bootstrap analysis of DNA fingerprinting-based phylogenetic trees with the freeware program FreeTree: application to trichomonad parasites.
The Win95/98/NT program FreeTree for computation of distance matrices and construction of phylogenetic or phenetic trees on the basis of random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD), RFLP and allozymeExpand

Critical taxonomic revision of Parabasalids with description of one new genus and three new species.
We propose a new classification of Parabasalia which is congruent with both ultrastructural and molecular-phylogenetic studies. We identify six main parabasalid lineages and give them the rank ofExpand

Inference of the phylogenetic position of oxymonads based on nine genes: support for metamonada and excavata.
Circumscribing major eukaryote groups and resolving higher order relationships between them are among the most challenging tasks facing molecular evolutionists. Recently, evidence suggesting a newExpand

Comparison of european Trichobilharzia species based on ITS1 and ITS2 sequences.
Schistosomes are parasites of considerable medical and veterinary importance and, therefore, all aspects of their biology have been intensively studied. In contrast, our knowledge of species of theExpand

Validity reassessment of Trichobilharzia species using Lymnaea stagnalis as the intermediate host
The systematics within the genus Trichobilharzia is complicated. After the description of the type species Trichobilharzia ocellata, the name was routinely used for nearly all European findings ofExpand

A Eukaryote without a Mitochondrial Organelle
The presence of mitochondria and related organelles in every studied eukaryote supports the view that mitochondria are essential cellular components. Here, we report the genome sequence of aExpand

New evolutionary lineages, unexpected diversity, and host specificity in the parabasalid genus Tetratrichomonas.
We studied morphological and molecular polymorphism of 53 Tetratrichomonas isolates obtained from amphibian, reptilian, mammalian hosts, and from a slug with the aid of protargol staining andExpand

Eukaryotic pyruvate formate lyase and its activating enzyme were acquired laterally from a Firmicute.
Most of the major groups of eukaryotes have microbial representatives that thrive in low oxygen conditions. Those that have been studied in detail generate ATP via pathways involving anaerobicallyExpand
