There is an error in the seventh sentence of the Abstract. It should read: The highest dN/dS was detected for the MT-ATP8 gene (0.29896) among Accipitridae, while the lowest for the MT-CO1 gene (0.01546). There is an error in the third sentence of the "Rates and patterns of mitochondrial gene evolution within Accipitridae" section of the Results and Discussion. It should read: In the protein coding region, the most variable region of the genomes by percent variable sites is MT-ATP8, followed by…

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.
Complete mitochondrial genome of Urocissa erythroryncha (Passeriformes: Corvidae)
Phylogenetic analysis showed that Urocissa erythroryncha and the other species of Corvidae were monophyletic group in this study, and the monophyly of the genus Pyrrhocorax was strongly supported, which support a sister-group relationship between CorvidAE and Muscicapidae.
New view on the organization and evolution of Palaeognathae mitogenomes poses the question on the ancestral gene rearrangement in Aves
The duplicated control regions with adjacent genes are more common in avian mitochondrial genomes than it was previously thought and could increase effectiveness of replication and transcription as well as the number of replicating mitogenomes per organelle.
The first complete mitogenome of Australia’s largest raptor, the wedge-tailed eagle (Aquila audax)
The genomic architecture of a complete mitogenome from a Wedge-tailed eagle (Aquila audax) encoded a conserved structure consisting of 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), two r RNA genes, 22 tRNA genes, a repeat region and a control region (D-loop), with all protein- coding sequences started with methionine.
Mitogenomes of Accipitriformes and Cathartiformes Were Subjected to Ancestral and Recent Duplications Followed by Gradual Degeneration
Different portions of control regions in Cathartiformes showed conflicting phylogenetic signals indicating that some sections of these regions were homogenized at a frequency higher than the rate of speciation, whereas others have still evolved separately.
Metacaspase gene family in Rosaceae genomes: Comparative genomic analysis and their expression during pear pollen tube and fruit development
The current study highlighted the evolutionary relationship and duplication of the MC gene family in these six Rosaceae genomes and provided appropriate candidate genes for further studies in P. bretschneideri.
Systematic Identification and Evolution Analysis of Sox Genes in Coturnix japonica Based on Comparative Genomics
Genetic analyses indicated that Sox genes are an ancient gene family, and strong purifying selections played key roles in the evolution of CjSox genes of C. japonica, and most Sox genes exhibited highly embryo-specific expression in both gonads.


The Mitochondrial Genomes of Aquila fasciata and Buteo lagopus (Aves, Accipitriformes): Sequence, Structure and Phylogenetic Analyses
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.
CSB = conserved sequence block; CSB-like = a sequence similar to the CSB
LSP = light-strand transcription promoter; HSP = heavy-strand transcription promoter; twill box means the comparison of two CRs, the lack of base number
