Abstract In this study we report the complete mitochondrial (mt) DNA sequence from Cinereous vulture Aegypius monachus, a large raptorial bird species of Falconiformes. The mtDNA is a 17,811-bp circular molecule with a total A + T content of 54.03%. The mitochondrial genome contains 37 genes and an extra pseudo-control region. The gene arrangement pattern is identical to Buteo and Falco, which has remnant CR2 gene order. All protein-coding genes use the standard mitochondrial initiation codon… 

Complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the Himalayan Griffon, Gyps himalayensis (Accipitriformes: Accipitridae): Sequence, structure, and phylogenetic analyses

The mitochondrial genome of the Himalayan Griffon, Gyps himalayensis, which is an Old World vulture belonging to the family Accipitridae and occurring along the Himalayas, provides a potentially useful resource for further exploration of the taxonomic status and phylogenetic history of Gyps species.

The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus)

The complete mitochondrial genome of the Sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) was sequenced and reported for the first time using muscle tissue and showed its genome structure was in accordance with other Accipitridae species.

Complete mitochondrial genomesequence of the hen harrier (Circus cyaneus)

A phylogenetic analysis between 17 species using 12 protein-coding genes proved that Accipiter gentilis is the most close to Circus cyaneus.

Old and Cosmopolite: Molecular Phylogeny of Tropical–Subtropical Kites (Aves: Elaninae) with Taxonomic Implications

This work uses nucleotide sequences of three genetic markers to reconstruct the phylogenetic relationships of the Elaninae, other kites, and representatives of different families of diurnal raptors, and suggests elevating this group to family level as Elanidae within the order Accipitriformes.

Complete mitochondrial genome of the Merlin (Falco columbarius)

The complete mitochondrial genome of the Merlin (Falco columbarius) was sequenced and reported for the first time using muscle tissue and sequence analysis showed its structure is similar to the other raptors.

Phylogenetic relationships and genetic variations among cinereous vultures Aegypius monachus in South Korea

The results indicate that the origin of the South Korean population is most likely from one source population of the Far Eastern cluster (Mongolian population), which was supported by the outcome of mtDNA analysis.

Mitogenomic analysis of extant condor species provides insight into the molecular evolution of vultures

The evolution of large vultures linked to mountainous habitats was accompanied by extreme physiological and behavioral specializations for energetically efficient flights. However, little is known on

Breeding Ecology of Cinereous Vulture in Tien-Shan Mountains, China

During 2016 and 2017, we observed 4 nests of the Cinereous Vulture (Aegypius monachus) in the middle of the Tien Shan Mountains, the west of China, and tried to follow them by the GPS/GSM



The Complete Mitochondrial Genome of Bean Goose (Anser fabalis) and Implications for Anseriformes Taxonomy

The complete mtDNA of Bean goose is determined, which is 16,688 bp long and contains 13 protein-coding genes, 2 rRNAs, 22 tRNAs and a control region, which supports the classification of them into four major branches: Anatinae, Anserinee, Dendrocygninae and Anseranatidae.

Complete mitochondrial genome of the Spilornis cheela (Falconiformes, Accipitridae): Comparison of S. cheela and Spizaetus alboniger

Here, we sequenced the complete mitochondrial genome of Spilornis cheela (Falconiformes, Accipitridae), which is considered as endemic raptor species and listed in the second category of National Key

The complete sequence of the mitochondrial genome of Buteo buteo (Aves, Accipitridae) indicates an early split in the phylogeny of raptors.

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.

Rampant polyphyly indicates cryptic diversity in a clade of Neotropical flycatchers (Aves: Tyrannidae)

A DNA phylogeny for a mitochondrial and a nuclear locus with a complete species sampling in Zimmerius flycatchers shows that the genus is characterized by multiple mtDNA polyphyly, leading to a doubling of Zimmerius species-level diversity compared to taxonomic treatments conducted before 2001.

Contrasting Evolutionary Dynamics and Information Content of the Avian Mitochondrial Control Region and ND2 Gene

The two regions yield quite similar genealogical reconstructions, as well as indicating similar departures from neutral equilibrium assumptions for A. phoeniceus and the tricolored blackbird, suggesting that limited sampling of the mitochondrial genome should focus on the CR.

Mitochondrial genomes and avian phylogeny: complex characters and resolvability without explosive radiations.

By showing the avian tree is, in principle, resolvable, it is demonstrated that the radiation of birds is amenable to standard evolutionary analysis.

Creation of an Open-Access, Mutation-Defined Fibroblast Resource for Neurological Disease Research

This work has generated an open-access collection of fibroblast lines from patients carrying mutations linked to neurological disease, which represents a significant resource that will advance the use of patient cells as disease models by the scientific community.

Genome-Wide Association Study of Retinopathy in Individuals without Diabetes

This genome-wide association study of retinopathy in individuals without diabetes showed little evidence of genetic associations and further studies are needed to identify genes associated with these signs in order to help unravel novel pathways and determinants of microvascular diseases.
