Repetitive DNA sequences as an insight into Aeglidae (Crustacea, Anomura) evolution.

The evolutionary relationships of five Atlantic Aeglidae species (Aegla neuquensis affinis, A. humahuaca, A. jujuyana, A. platensis, and A. uruguayana) were studied by (i) satellite DNA analysis using a restriction enzyme digestion and hybridization pattern approach and (ii) genome screening by using randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) typing.
