A cladistic analysis of genome assemblies (syntenic associations) for eutherian mammals against two distant outgroup species—opossum and chicken—permitted a refinement of the 46-chromosome karyotype formerly inferred in the ancestral eutherian. We show that two intact chromosome pairs (corresponding to human chromosomes 13 and 18) and three conserved chromosome segments (10q, 19p and 8q in the human karyotype) are probably symplesiomorphic for Eutheria because they are also present as unaltered… CONTINUE READING
