Phylogeographical analyses of domestic and wild yaks based on mitochondrial DNA: new data and reappraisal
Three differentiated lineages of yaks probably evolved allopatrically in different regions during the Pleistocene glaciation events, then reunited into a single gene pool during post-glacial population expansion and migrations before the start of the domestication of yak in the Holocene. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of the ridgetail white prawn Exopalaemon carinicauda Holthuis, 1950 (Crustacean: Decapoda: Palaemonidae) revealed a novel rearrangement of tRNA genes.
All analyses based on nucleotide and amino acid data strongly support the monophyly of Decapoda, and the Penaeidae, Reptantia, Caridea, and Meiura clades were recovered as monophyletic groups with strong statistical support. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genomes of two common shrimps (Litopenaeus vannamei and Fenneropenaeus chinensis) and their phylogenomic considerations.
Both the pattern of gene rearrangements and phylogenomic analyses using concatenated nucleic acid and amino acid sequences of the 13 mitochondrial protein-coding genes strengthened the support that Caridea and Palinura are primitive members of Pleocyemata. Expand
A close phylogenetic relationship between Sipuncula and Annelida evidenced from the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Phascolosoma esculenta
This is the first report of a complete mitochondrial genome as a representative within the phylum Sipuncula and phylogenetic analyses based on the concatenated protein sequences also strongly support the sipunculan + annelid clade (including echiurans and pogonophorans). Expand

The results show that the ratio of nonsynonymous/synonymous substitutions in mitochondrial protein-coding genes is significantly higher in domestic yak lineages than those of wild yaks, which suggests that the relaxation of selective constraints following the domestication in addition to bottlenecks has allowed faster accumulation of nonsilent substitutions on the yak mitochondrial genome, despite its short domestication history.

The gene organization, gene rearrangement and codon usage in the mitochondrial genome of Euphausiid krill, and phylogenetic trees based on currently available malacostracan mitochondrial genomes built with the maximum likelihood and the Bayesian models strongly support the monophyly of Stomatopoda, Penaeidae, Caridea, and Brachyura. Expand
Phylomitogenomics of Malacostraca (Arthropoda: Crustacea)
Phylomitogenomic analyses strong support that Euphausiacea is nested within Decapoda, and closely related to Dendrobranchiata, which is also consistent with the evidence from developmental biology. Expand

A phylogenetic tree constructed based on 12 PCGs of 25 bivalve mitochondrial genomes shows that all seven genera constitute monophyletic groups with very high support values, including those in Mactra, Mytilus, Meretrix, and Crassostrea. Expand

No significant difference in growth at low temperature was observed between Ben R and benzimidazole-sensitive (Ben S) isolates, and Ben R2 was induced by a point mutation from TTC to TAC at codon 200 in the β-tubulin gene in Ben S isolates. Expand

This is the first report of a metagenomic analysis using Illumina sequencing of full-scale A2O sludge from a municipal sewage treatment plant, suggesting the key role of ANAMMOX in nitrogen metabolism in the A2 O sludge. Expand
