Divergent Viruses Discovered in Arthropods and Vertebrates Revise the Evolutionary History of the Flaviviridae and Related Viruses
TLDR
The traditional view on the evolutionary history, host range, and genomic structures of a major group of RNA viruses is revised, suggesting that arthropods may be the ultimate reservoir of the Flaviviridae and related viruses, harboring considerable genetic and phenotypic diversity. Expand
Mitogenomics of the Speartooth Shark challenges ten years of control region sequencing
TLDR
This study strongly supports the use of single river drainages as discrete management units for the conservation of G. glyphis and demonstrates a clear advantage of using the whole mitogenome to inform population structure compared to single gene approaches. Expand
Complete mitochondrial genome of the tiger shark Galeocerdo cuvier (Carcharhiniformes: Carcharhinidae)
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of G. cuvier is presented for the first time and the dihydrouridine arm of tRNA-Ser2 was replaced by a simple loop and the other tRNAs could be folded into the typical cloverleaf structure. Expand
Permanent Genetic Resources added to Molecular Ecology Resources Database 1 April 2012 – 31 May 2012
This article documents the addition of 123 microsatellite marker loci to the Molecular Ecology Resources Database. Loci were developed for the following species: Brenthis ino, Cichla orinocensis,Expand
Mitochondrial genome of the Siberian sturgeon Acipenser baerii
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of Siberian sturgeon Acipenser baerii had been determined and provided a useful tool for evolutionary as well as population genetics studied. Expand
Complete mitochondrial genome of the brownbanded bamboo shark Chiloscyllium punctatum
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of the brownbanded bamboo shark Chiloscyllium punctatum was obtained for the first time in this study and the strong codon usage bias against the G was found in the third codon positions of H-strand-encoded protein genes. Expand
Whole mitogenome sequencing refines population structure of the Critically Endangered sawfish Pristis pristis
TLDR
Each river drainage across the species' range should be considered a discrete management unit unless there is evidence of freshwater connectivity, and the improved resolution of population structure obtained with whole mitogenome analysis compared to single mitochondrial gene approaches suggests that female reproductive philopatry may have been overlooked in previous studies of some elasmobranch species. Expand
Complete mitochondrial genome of the scalloped hammerhead Sphyrna lewini (Carcharhiniformes: Sphyrnidae)
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of the endangered scalloped hammerhead Sphyrna lewini was firstly determined and two start codon (ATG and GTG) and three stop codon patterns were found in protein-coding genes. Expand
Complete mitochondrial genome of the Critically Endangered speartooth shark Glyphis glyphis (Carcharhiniformes: Carcharhinidae)
TLDR
The first complete mitogenome for the speartooth shark Glyphis glyphis, a rare euryhaline elasmobranch from northern Australia and Papua New Guinea, is presented to help elucidate the taxonomy of this poorly known group of sharks. Expand
Complete mitochondrial genome of Sarcocheilichthys parvus (Cypriniformes, Cyprinidae)
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of Sarcocheilichthys parvus was first obtained and has the typical vertebrate mitochondrial gene arrangement. Expand
