The advantages of the ITS2 region of the nuclear rDNA cistron for analysis of phylogenetic relationships of insects: a Drosophila example.


We examined the utility for phylogenetic reconstruction of the second internal transcribed spacer (ITS2), lying between the nuclear 5.8S gene and the gene for large subunit ribosomal RNA, using sequences of Ceratitis, Bactrocera, Musca, and Drosophila. We aligned and analyzed 13 sequences from GenBank and 11 new sequences from diverse species of Drosophila… (More)
