Identification of complete mitochondrial genome of the tufted deer
TLDR
The mt genome of the tufted deer Elaphodus cephalophus is identified and it is found that GTG is the start codon of the NADH4L gene and the cyt b gene has a subterminal AAA followed by the stop codon TAG.
Developing a series of conservative anchor markers and their application to phylogenomics of Laurasiatherian mammals
TLDR
It was shown that both ‘supermatrix’ and ‘supertree’ trees generated similar topology, which accorded with the current understanding of the Laurasiatherian phylogeny in most aspects.
The complete mitochondrial genome and phylogenetic analysis of forest musk deer (Moschus berezovskii)
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of the forest musk deer and 22 other species of the order Cetartiodactyla supported the monophyly of Cervidae, Bovidae and Cetancodonta, and placed Moschidae as a sister group to Cerv Families/Bovidae.
Mitochondrial DNA structure and organization of the control region of South American camelids
TLDR
Alignment of the CR sequences from the four species shows a 337-bp segment that includes most of the nucleotide variability with 10 polymorphic sites that is suggested to be a molecular marker to infer data on camelid genetic relationships and population diversity studies.
The Mitochondrial Genome of the Sperm Whale and a New Molecular Reference for Estimating Eutherian Divergence Dates
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of an odontocete, the sperm whale, is sequenced and included in phylogenetic analyses together with the previously sequenced complete mtDNAs of two mysticetes and a number of other mammals, making both Artiodactyla and Suiformes (pigs, peccaries, and hippopotamuses) paraphyletic.
Complete sequence of the Tibetan Mastiff mitochondrial genome and its phylogenetic relationship with other Canids ( Canis, Canidae).
TLDR
Neighbor-joining and maximum-parsimony trees of Canids constructed using 12 mitochondrial protein-coding genes showed that as the coyotes and Tibetan wolves clustered together, so too did the gray wolves and domestic dogs, suggesting that the Tibetan Mastiff originated from the gray wolf as did other domestic dogs.
Avian phylogeny and divergence times based on mitogenomic sequences : a thesis presented in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Genetics, Institute of Molecular BioSciences, Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand
TLDR
A revised annotation of avian and reptile mt genomes has been carried out, which improves consistency of labeling gene start and stop positions and a number of conserved patterns and interesting differences identified.
The Phylogeny of the Cetartiodactyla Based on Complete Mitochondrial Genomes
TLDR
Phylogenetic trees indicate that the basal divergence within the Cetartiodactyla is between the Suina and a strongly supported clade of the remaining Cetarts; Tragulidae is the early offshoot within the Ruminantia, followed by the Antilocapridae.
Mammalian mitogenomic relationships and the root of the eutherian tree
TLDR
A mitogenomic study based on the set of protein-coding genes from complete mt genomes of 60 mammalian species finds that the previously unrepresented order Dermoptera (flying lemurs) fell within Primates as the sister group of Anthropoidea, making Primates paraphyletic.
Analyses of Wild Ungulates Mitogenome
TLDR
The methods and principles derived from mtDNA studies on wild ungulate species are described, and basic sequence preparation methods and specialized software for mitogenome assembly and annotation are outlined.

Phylogenetic analyses of mitochondrial DNA suggest a sister group relationship between Xenarthra (Edentata) and Ferungulates.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of 12 protein-coding genes from complete mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) molecules of various mammals including a xenarthran representative, the armadillo, showed that the order Xenarthra is a sister group to the ferungulates.

TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of the hippopotamus, Hippopotamus amphibius, is sequenced and it is identified as the artiodactyl sister group of the cetaceans, thereby making both Artiodactola and the suborder Suiformes paraphyletic.
Inclusion of Cetaceans Within the Order Artiodactyla Based on Phylogenetic Analysis of Pancreatic Ribonuclease Genes
TLDR
The evolution of sequence features of ribonucleases such as the distribution of positively charged amino acids and of potential glycosylation sites is described with regard to increased double-stranded RNA cleavage that is observed in several cetacean and artiodactyl RNases which may have no role in ruminants or ruminant-like digestion.
Phylogenetic relationships of artiodactyls and cetaceans as deduced from the comparison of cytochrome b and 12S rRNA mitochondrial sequences.
TLDR
The combined analysis of the two genes suggests a monophyletic Cetacea +Artiodactyla clade, whereas PerissodactylA, Carnivora, and Tethytheria fall outside this clade.
The Complete Mitochondrial DNA Sequence of the Pig (Sus scrofa)
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of the pig, Sus scrofa, was determined and identified the pig (Suiformes) as a sister group of a cow/whale clade, making Artiodactyla paraphyletic.
The phylogenetic position of the Talpidae within eutheria based on analysis of complete mitochondrial sequences.
TLDR
The analyses of complete mtDNAs challenge the maintenance of the order Lipotyphla as a taxonomic unit and support the elevation of the Soricomorpha to the level of an order, as previously proposed in some morphological studies.
Molecular evidence from retroposons that whales form a clade within even-toed ungulates
TLDR
An extensive survey of retropositional events that might have occurred during the divergence of whales and even-toed ungulates is made, providing evidence that whales, ruminants and hippopotamuses form a monophyletic group.
Molecular evidence for the inclusion of cetaceans within the order Artiodactyla.
TLDR
It is estimated that the whale lineage has branched off a protoruminant lineage < 50 Mya, and the cetacean transition to aquatic life is inferred to be a relatively recent evolutionary event.
Cytochrome b nucleotide sequences and the identification of five primary lineages of extant cetaceans.
TLDR
The level of divergence among the five cetacean lineages, and that seen between cetraceans and artiodactyls, suggests that cetACEans andArtiodactylls had a common ancestor approximately 60 Mya.
