Origin and molecular characteristics of a novel 2013 avian influenza A(H6N1) virus causing human infection in Taiwan.
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses showed that all 8 genes of this virus were clustered in the Taiwan lineage, and the closest relative of A/Taiwan/2/2013(H6N1) is A/chicken/ Taiwan/A2837/2013, suggesting the latter might be the precursor of the novel virus.
Characterization of the complete mitochondrial genome of the Rock pigeon, Columba livia (Columbiformes: Columbidae).
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of the Rock pigeon is mapped, demonstrating a structure very similar to that of other birds, and basic information for phylogenetic analyses of birds, especially Columbiformes species is provided.
The Mitochondrial Genomes of Aquila fasciata and Buteo lagopus (Aves, Accipitriformes): Sequence, Structure and Phylogenetic Analyses
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial sequences of two species of accipitrid birds, namely Aquila fasciata and Buteo lagopus, are determined and phylogenetic analyses indicate that the subfamily Aquilinae and all currently polytypic genera of this subfamily are monophyletic.
Transcriptome Sequences Resolve Deep Relationships of the Grape Family
TLDR
The resulting transcriptome phylogeny provides robust support for the deep relationships, showing the phylogenetic utility of transcriptome data for plants over a time scale at least since the mid-Cretaceous, and the pros and cons of transcriptomic data for phylogenetic inference in plants.
Complete mitochondrial genome of Cabot's tragopan, Tragopan caboti (Galliformes: Phasianidae).
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of Cabot's tragopan was sequenced, providing basic information for phylogenetic analyses among Galliform birds, and especially Tragopans species.
The mitochondrial genome of the Cinnamon Bittern, Ixobrychus cinnamomeus (Pelecaniformes: Ardeidae): sequence, structure and phylogenetic analysis
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of I. cinnamomeus was determined and the monophyly of Ciconiidae, Ardeidae and Threskiornithidae were confirmed, however, the monophilia of traditional Cicon iiformes and Pelecaniformes failed to be recovered.
Characterization of extracellular cellulose-degrading enzymes from Bacillus thuringiensis strains
The gram-positive spore-forming bacteria, Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) strains produced novel cellulases which could liberate glucose from soluble cellulose, carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC), and
Rapid and recent diversification patterns in Anseriformes birds: Inferred from molecular phylogeny and diversification analyses
TLDR
Both molecular phylogeny and diversification analyses results support that Anseriformes birds underwent rapid and recent diversification in their evolutionary history, especially in modern ducks, which show extreme diversification during the Plio-Pleistocene.
