Abstract Analysis of mtDNA control region (934 b. p.) and cytochrome b gene (1140 b. p.) polymorphism of the 33 roe deer samples from the south-west of Ukraine was carried out. 30 different haplotypes of mtDNA have been described and all of them are related to Capreolus capreolus Linnaeus, 1758. Two well differentiated haplogroups were discovered on the examined territory. The isolated subgroup of related haplotypes was revealed in the Crimea that is likely a result of the long-term…

Siberian Roe Deer (Capreolus pygargus Pallas, 1771) in Ukraine: Analysis of the Mitochondrial and Nuclear DNA
It was noted that all the analyzed mitochondrial sequences of individuals from the Samara forest are characteristic of the Siberian roe Capreolus pygargus Pallas, 1771.
Genetic diversity and phylogeography of European Roe Deer, Capreolus capreolus, in Iran as inferred from mtDNA genes (Mammalia: Cervidae)
It seems this species probably entered Iran from Europe through northern Iran, and then spread to the western/northwestern regions of the country over time.
On the Gene Pool of Roe Deer (Capreolus) of Eastern Europe: Analysis of the Cyt b Gene Sequence Variability
The data obtained showed that, at present, both European and Siberian roe deer inhabit this part of the range with predominance of the later: about 60% of individuals carry various Siberian haplotypes, most of which are similar to those in the populations of Capreolus pygargus from the Urals, Siberia, and the Far East.
Genetic diversity and phylogeography of Siberian roe deer, Caproulus pygargus, in central and peripheral populations
It is found that peripheral populations in the northwestern parts of the species range (Urals), as well as the isolated population from Jeju Island, are genetically distinct from those in the core part of the range, both in terms of genetic diversity and quantitative composition of haplogroups.
Vocal phenotype of male rutting roars and genetic markers delineate East European red deer (Cervus elaphus) from Central and West European populations.
It is discussed that population bottlenecking might affect the acoustics of the rutting roars, in addition to genotype, of the Voronezh and Pannonian red deer populations.
Identification of European (Capreolus capreolus L.) and Siberian (C. pygargus Pall.) roe deer hybrids by microsatellite marker analysis
An analysis of 130 tissue specimens of the European and the Siberian roe deer from nine regions of Russia and Ukraine using microsatellite loci analysis was conducted, aimed at the identification of hybrid animals.


Analysis of the variability of the control region and cytochrome b gene of mtDNA of Capreolus pygargus Pall
The variation pattern and spatial distribution of mitochondrial lines allowed us to suggest that a haplogroup that initially belongs to C. p.
Median-joining networks for inferring intraspecific phylogenies.
A method for constructing networks from recombination-free population data that combines features of Kruskal's algorithm for finding minimum spanning trees by favoring short connections, and Farris's maximum-parsimony (MP) heuristic algorithm, which sequentially adds new vertices called "median vectors", except that the MJ method does not resolve ties.

Some examples were worked out using reported globin sequences to show that synonymous substitutions occur at much higher rates than amino acid-altering substitutions in evolution.
The neighbor-joining method: a new method for reconstructing phylogenetic trees.
The neighbor-joining method and Sattath and Tversky's method are shown to be generally better than the other methods for reconstructing phylogenetic trees from evolutionary distance data.
MEGA2: molecular evolutionary genetics analysis software
MEGA2 vastly extends the capabilities of MEGA version 1 by facilitating analyses of large datasets, enabling creation and analyses of groups of sequences, and expanding the repertoire of statistical methods for molecular evolutionary studies.
