The phylogenetic relationships among the species belonging to the family Myxinidae are still debatable. The mitochondrial DNA sequences from the large ribosomal RNA gene may be of great value for systematic and phylogenetic studies within families. Partial sequences of the 16S rRNA gene were obtained for comparisons among the following hagfish species, Paramyxine nelsoni, Paramyxine sheni, Paramyxine taiwanae, Paramyxine yangi, Paramyxine cheni, Eptatretus burgeri, Eptatretus stouii, Eptatretus… CONTINUE READING
