The complete sequence of the mitochondrial genome of Buteo buteo (Aves, Accipitridae) indicates an early split in the phylogeny of raptors.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses indicate an early split between Accipitridae and Falconidae, which can be assumed to have taken place in the late Cretaceous 65-83 MYA, according to molecular dating of other avian divergence times.
Comparative Sequence Analysis of the Hexon Gene in the Entire Spectrum of Human Adenovirus Serotypes: Phylogenetic, Taxonomic, and Clinical Implications
TLDR
The elucidation of the complete hexon gene sequence in all Adenovirus serotypes yields information on putative epitopes for virus recognition, which may have important implications for future treatment strategies permitting efficient targeting of any AdV serotype.
Genetic divergences and intraspecific variation in corvids of the genus Corvus (Aves: Passeriformes: Corvidae) - a first survey based on museum specimens
TLDR
The distribution of plumage colour in the phylogenetic tree indicates that the pale markings evolved several times independently, and confirms earlier assumptions of a Palearctic origin of the genus Corvus with several independent colonizations of the Nearctic and the Aethiopis.
Phylogeography and population structure of the saker falcon (Falco cherrug) and the influence of hybridization: mitochondrial and microsatellite data
TLDR
Results from both nuclear and mitochondrial markers are compatible with the previously postulated ‘Out of Africa’ hypothesis assuming an African origin of the hierofalcons.
Genetic diversity in managed subpopulations of Norway spruce [Picea abies (L.) Karst.]
TLDR
Nuclear SSRs results showed that there is generally more genetic variation and heterozygosity within populations than among populations, and populations from high elevation exhibit more Genetic variation than samples from middle and low elevations.
Marmot phylogeny revisited: molecular evidence for a diphyletic origin of sociality
TLDR
The molecular phylogeny suggests a diphyletic origin of high sociality in the genus Marmota, and the position of M. monax as a member of the Eurasian clade is in accordance with the evolution of chromosome numbers.
Ancient and Recent Horizontal Invasions of Drosophilids by P Elements
TLDR
The results imply that P elements cross species barriers more frequently than previously thought but require a particular genomic environment and thus seem to be confined to a rather narrow spectrum of host species.
Unusual Origin of a Nuclear Pseudogene in the Italian Wall Lizard: Intergenomic and Interspecific Transfer of a Large Section of the Mitochondrial Genome in the Genus Podarcis (Lacertidae)
TLDR
The results suggest that numt-sic has spread rapidly through the species range via sexual transmission, thereby being transferred to populations belonging to well-separated mt lineages that diverged 1–3 Mya.
Repeated horizontal transfer of P transposons between Scaptomyza pallida and Drosophila bifasciata
TLDR
Results suggest that the O-type subfamily of D. bifasciata has been received by horizontal transfer from an external source, most probably from the genus Scaptomyza, as has been previously suspected for the M-type family.
Identification of a complete P-element in the genome of Drosophila bifasciata.
TLDR
The sequence comparison between the P-elements of D. bifasciata, D. melanogaster and Scaptomyza pallida reveals relationships not in accordance with the phylogeny of the species, which suggests a further case of horizontal transmission involving mobile elements in the genus Drosophila.
