Phylogenetic analysis of the Prionini ( Coleoptera : Cerambycidae : Prioninae ) from China based on mitochondrial ribosomal RNA genes and Cytochrome oxidase I gene

This is the first molecular systematic treatment of the Prionini. Here, three mitochondrial genes were partially sequenced from the Chinese Prionini to analyze phylogenetic relationships. Nucleotide compositions of three mitochondrial genes in the Chinese Prionini are biased toward A and T as in other insects. Ratios of transition vs. transversion (Ts/Tv… (More)
