Chromosomal instability in Afrotheria : fragile sites, evolutionary breakpoints and phylogenetic inference from genome sequence assemblies
(BioMed Central, 2007-10)
Background: Extant placental mammals are divided into four major clades (Laurasiatheria, Supraprimates, Xenarthra and Afrotheria). Given that Afrotheria is generally thought to root the eutherian tree in phylogenetic ...
Evolutionary history of LINE-1 in the major clades of placental mammals
