Ribosomal RNA Secondary Structure : Compensatory

  title={Ribosomal RNA Secondary Structure : Compensatory},
  author={David M. Hillis},
Using sequence data from the 28s ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes of selected vertebrates, we investigated the effects that constraints imposed by secondary structure have on the phylogenetic analysis of rRNA sequence data. Our analysis indicates that characters from both base-pairing regions (stems) and non-base-pairing regions (loops) contain phylogenetic information, as judged by the level of support of the phylogenetic results compared with a well-established tree based on both morphological and… CONTINUE READING
