Molecular phylogenies for seven species of schistosomes, including four species infecting man, were constructed from PCR-amplified sequences of two ribosomal genes: one nuclear (internal transcribed spacer 2 in the ribosomal multigenic family) and one mitochondrial (16S rDNA). The two phylogenies obtained are congruent, and the data suggest that the mitochondrial sequence evolves about three times faster than the nuclear sequence. We propose a calibration of the phylogenetic tree of… CONTINUE READING
