Ribosomal RNA-based studies of trypanosome phylogenies have highlighted considerable differences in genetic diversity within clades in the genus Trypanosoma and several-fold substitution rate differences between clades have been identified. While early 18S rRNA-based studies were hampered by highly variable substitution rates and long-branch attraction, it is apparent that genuine differences in evolution rates within localized clades do exist and questions remain regarding what rate or rates… CONTINUE READING
