We have used a combined approach of phylogenetics and cytogenetics to describe karyotype evolution in Diprotodontia. Molecular relationships of diprotodontian marsupials have been clarified using a concatenation of 5 nuclear gene sequences from multiple exemplars of all extant genera. Our well-resolved phylogenetic tree has been used as a basis for understanding chromosome evolution both within this Order, as well as in marsupials in general. It is clear that the ancestral marsupial karyotype… CONTINUE READING
