The structural and evolutionary characteristics of the mitochondrial control region were studied by using control region sequences of 68 avian species. The distribution of the variable nucleotide positions within the control region was found to be genus specific and not dependant on the level of divergence, as suggested before. Saturation was shown to occur at the level of divergence of 10% in pairwise comparisons of the control region sequences, as has also been reported for the third codon… CONTINUE READING
