Though it is well accepted that mitochondria originated from an alphaproteobacteria-like ancestor, the phylogenetic relationship of the mitochondrial endosymbiont to extant Alphaproteobacteria is yet unresolved. The focus of much debate is whether the affinity between mitochondria and fast-evolving alphaproteobacterial lineages reflects true homology or artefacts. Approaches such as site exclusion have been claimed to mitigate compositional heterogeneity between taxa, but this comes at the cost… Expand
Dating Alphaproteobacteria evolution with eukaryotic fossils
TLDR
It is estimated that Alphaproteobacteria arose ~1900 million years ago, followed by rapid divergence of their major clades, and the origin of Rickettsiales, an order of obligate intracellular bacteria whose hosts are mostly animals, predates the emergence of animals for ~700 Ma but coincides with that of eukaryotes.

Dating Alphaproteobacteria evolution with eukaryotic fossils
TLDR
It is shown that the origin of Rickettsiales, an order of obligate intracellular bacteria whose hosts are mostly animals, predates the emergence of animals for ~700 Ma but coincides with that of eukaryotes, which strongly suggests that early Rickettsia lineages had established previously underappreciated interactions with unicellular eUKaryotes.

Anomalous Phylogenetic Behavior of Ribosomal Proteins in Metagenome-Assembled Asgard Archaea.
TLDR
It is shown that universal proteins including ribosomal proteins of asgard archaeal MAGs fail to meet the basic phylogenetic criterion fulfilled by genome sequences of cultured archaea investigated to date: These proteins do not share common evolutionary histories to the same extent as pure culture genomes do, pointing to a chimeric nature of as Gard archaealing MAGs.

A spectrum of verticality across genes
Lateral gene transfer (LGT) has impacted prokaryotic genome evolution, yet the extent to which LGT compromises vertical evolution across individual genes and individual phyla is unknown, as are theExpand
Comparing Ultraconserved Elements and Exons for Phylogenomic Analyses of Middle American Cichlids: When Data Agree to Disagree
TLDR
The causes of discordance between phylogenetic hypotheses obtained using a novel dataset of ultraconserved elements and a recently published exon dataset of the cichlid tribe Heroini are explored, demonstrating the robustness of phylogenomic methods to accommodate genomic markers with different biological and phylogenetic properties.

Diversity and biogeography of Woesearchaeota: A comprehensive analysis of multi-environment data
TLDR
A comprehensive study for Woesearchaeota with 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene sequencing data and metagenomic whole genome sequencing data finds that apart from free-living environments, WoesSearchaeota also widely distribute in host-associated environments. Expand
A functional bacteria-derived restriction modification system in the mitochondrion of a heterotrophic protist
TLDR
It is suggested that a mitochondrion-encoded RM system can function as a toxin–antitoxin selfish element, and that such elements could be co-opted by eukaryotic genomes to drive biased organellar inheritance. Expand
DrosoPhyla: genomic resources for drosophilid phylogeny and systematics
TLDR
A new framework for investigating the evolution of traits in fruit flies is established, and the phylogenetic position of some previously unplaced species is determined. Expand
DrosoPhyla: Resources for Drosophilid Phylogeny and Systematics
TLDR
A new framework for investigating the evolution of traits in fruit flies is established, and the phylogenetic position of some previously unplaced species are determined. Expand
The metabolic network of the last bacterial common ancestor
TLDR
Analysis of thousands of individual gene trees indicate that LBCA was rod-shaped and the first lineage to diverge from the ancestral bacterial stem was most similar to modern Clostridia, followed by other autotrophs that harbor the acetyl-CoA pathway. Expand

Deep mitochondrial origin outside the sampled alphaproteobacteria
TLDR
It is suggested that mitochondria evolved from a proteobacterial lineage that branched off before the divergence of all sampled alphaproteobacteria and previous hypotheses on the nature of the mitochondrial ancestor should be re-evaluated. Expand
An integrated phylogenomic approach toward pinpointing the origin of mitochondria
TLDR
The results suggest that mitochondria most likely originated from a Rickettsiales endosymbiont already residing in the host, but not from the distantly related free-living Pelagibacter and Rhodospirillales. Expand
Phylogenomic evidence for a common ancestor of mitochondria and the SAR11 clade
TLDR
The evidence supports a common origin of mitochondria and SAR11 as a sister group to the Rickettsiales, and the simplest explanation is that mitochondria evolved from a planktonic marine alphaproteobacterial lineage that participated in multiple inter-specific cell colonization events, in some cases yielding parasitic relationships, but in at least one case producing a symbiosis that characterizes modern eukaryotic life. Expand
A Phylometagenomic Exploration of Oceanic Alphaproteobacteria Reveals Mitochondrial Relatives Unrelated to the SAR11 Clade
TLDR
The results allude to the existence of an alphaproteobacterial clade in the oxygen-rich surface waters of the oceans that represents the closest free-living relative to mitochondria identified thus far, and underscore the importance of expanding the taxonomic diversity in phylogenetic analyses beyond that represented by cultivated bacteria to study the origin of mitochondria. Expand
Genome phylogenies indicate a meaningful alpha-proteobacterial phylogeny and support a grouping of the mitochondria with the Rickettsiales.
TLDR
There is some evidence of horizontal gene transfer within the alpha-proteobacteria, but it appears to be restricted to a minority of genes most of whom can be categorized as operational, which means that placement of the mitochondrion should not be excessively hampered by interspecies gene transfer. Expand
An updated phylogeny of the Alphaproteobacteria reveals that the parasitic Rickettsiales and Holosporales have independent origins
TLDR
This work analyzes a dataset of 200 single-copy and conserved genes and employs diverse strategies to reduce compositional artefacts, resulting in a robust consensus phylogeny of the Alphaproteobacteria. Expand
Rooting the eukaryotic tree with mitochondrial and bacterial proteins.
TLDR
A new approach to the rooting of the eukaryotic tree is applied by using a subset of genomic information with more recent evolutionary origin-mitochondrial sequences, whose closest relatives are α-Proteobacteria. Expand
The SAR11 Group of Alpha-Proteobacteria Is Not Related to the Origin of Mitochondria
TLDR
Preliminary phylogenetic analyses support that SAR11 group is not the sistergroup of the Rickettsiales+mitochondria clade and confirm that the position of this group in the alpha-proteobacterial tree is strongly affected by tree reconstruction artefacts due to compositional bias. Expand
Bacterial genome chimaerism and the origin of mitochondria.
TLDR
The results support the idea that notable bacterial genome chimaerism has occurred en route to the formation of mitochondria. Expand
A genome phylogeny for mitochondria among alpha-proteobacteria and a predominantly eubacterial ancestry of yeast nuclear genes.
TLDR
It is indicated that at the levels of overall amino acid sequence identity and gene content, yeast shares a sister-group relationship with eubacteria, not with archaebacteria, in contrast to the current phylogenetic paradigm based on ribosomal RNA. Expand
