Inference of phylogenetic relationships based on insertions of retroposons
|We analyze phylogenetic relationships of many animals.
phylogenetic relationships, it is indispensable to understands how these animals
evolved and diverged to yield various species.
We use a unique technique based on insertion of the SINE, which is one
of the transposable elements dispersed among the genome of various animals.
method gives us phylogenetic trees with higher confidence compared with the
We are currently investigating the phylogenetic
relationships of various animals from mammals (whales, dolphins, bats,
hedgehogs, and moles), birds (penguins) and reptiles (tortoises).
