Phylogenetic analysis of over 4600 aligned nucleotide sequences from two nuclear genes, growth hormone receptor and BRCA1, provided congruent phylogenies depicting relationships among the major lineages of rodents. Separate and combined analyses resulted in five major conclusions: (1) strong support for a monophyletic Myodonta (containing the superfamilies Muroidea + Dipodoidea), with subfamily Gerbillinae being more closely related to Murinae than is Sigmodontinae; (2) a sister-group… CONTINUE READING
