The complete mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) (16,896 nt) of the wallaroo (Macropus robustus) was sequenced. The concatenated amino acid sequences of 12 mitochondrial protein-coding genes of the wallaroo plus those of a number of other mammals were included in a phylogenetic study of early mammalian divergences. The analysis joined monotremes and marsupials (the Marsupionta hypothesis) to the exclusion of eutherians. The analysis rejected significantly the commonly acknowledged Theria hypothesis…

Phylogenetic Analysis of 18S rRNA and the Mitochondrial Genomes of the Wombat, Vombatus ursinus, and the Spiny Anteater, Tachyglossus aculeatus: Increased Support for the Marsupionta Hypothesis
TLDR
Analysis of new data from the complete mitochondrial genomes of a second monotreme, the spiny anteater, and another marsupial, the wombat yielded clear support for the Marsupionta hypothesis, consistent with a basal split between eutherians and marsupials/monotremes among extant mammals.
The mitochondrial DNA molecule of the aardvark, Orycteropus afer, and the position of the Tubulidentata in the eutherian tree
TLDR
The aardvark tRNA–Ser(UCN) differs from that of other mammalian mtDNAs reported and appears to have reversed to the ancestral secondary structure of non–mammalian vertebrates and mitochondrial tRNAs in general.
The mtDNA sequence of the ostrich and the divergence between paleognathous and neognathous birds.
TLDR
Molecular dating of the divergence between the ostrich and the chicken indicates that these two avian lineages separated 80-90 MYA, and Phylogenetic analysis of complete cytochrome b genes of six avian orders showed that Passeriformes represent the earliest divergence among recent birds, contradicting the commonly accepted notion of a basal position of the Palaeognathae among recent Birds.
The complete mitochondrial genome of Alligator mississippiensis and the separation between recent archosauria (birds and crocodiles).
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of the alligator, Alligator mississippiensis, was sequenced and maximum-likelihood branch length data of amino acid sequences suggest that the divergence between the avian and crocodilian lineages took place at approximately equal to 254 MYA.
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.
Phylogenetic relationships of the Banded Hare wallaby (Lagostrophus fasciatus) and a map of the kangaroo mitochondrial control region
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses strongly supported the hypothesis that the Banded Hare wallaby is the sister‐group of the wallaroo (subfamily Macropodidae), and the mt control region, or d‐loop, from Australian marsupials has been mapped for the first time.
Mitochondrial genome data alone are not enough to unambiguously resolve the relationships of Entognatha, Insecta and Crustacea sensu lato (Arthropoda)
TLDR
It is concluded that the relationships of the extant arthropod groups as inferred by mitochondrial genomes are highly vulnerable to outgroup choice, data treatment and gene choice, and no consistent alternative hypothesis of Collembola's relationships is supported.

The complete nucleotide sequence of the Crossostoma lacustre mitochondrial genome: conservation and variations among vertebrates.
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of Crossostoma lacustre, a freshwater loach from mountain stream of Taiwan, has been cloned and sequenced and provides evidence for the first time for the conservation of genetic information in the fish mitochondrial genome, especially among the vertebrates.
The marsupial mitochondrial genome and the evolution of placental mammals.
TLDR
The entire nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial genome of the American opossum, Didelphis virginiana, was determined and it can be shown that rodents represent an earlier branch among placental mammals than primates and artiodactyls and that artiodACTyls share a common ancestor with carnivores.
Evolution of the monotremes. The sequences of the protamine P1 genes of platypus and echidna.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the protamine P1 gene sequences indicates that the monotremes occupy a position half-way between the eutherian mammals and birds, and the time of divergence is estimated to be around 22 million years ago.
A complete sequence of the mitochondrial genome of the western lowland gorilla.
TLDR
The analysis of the peptide-coding genes suggest that relative to comparison between Homo and Pan a certain degree of transition saturation has taken place in codon position 3 in comparisons between Gorilla to either Homo or Pan.
The complete mitochondrial DNA sequence of the greater Indian rhinoceros, Rhinoceros unicornis, and the Phylogenetic relationship among Carnivora, Perissodactyla, and Artiodactyla (+ Cetacea).
TLDR
The evolutionary divergence between the families Rhinocerotidae and Equidae was dated to approximately 50 MYA and a sister group relationship was recognized between Carnivora and PerissodactylA to the exclusion of Artiodactyla (+ Cetacea).

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.
Complete nucleotide sequences of the domestic cat (Felis catus) mitochondrial genome and a transposed mtDNA tandem repeat (Numt) in the nuclear genome.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of mitochondrial gene sequences confirms the recent transfer of the cytoplasmic mtDNA sequences to the domestic cat nucleus and recapitulates evolutionary relationships between mammal species.
