    Markus Klint
    Department of Clinical Microbiology, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden
    BMC Microbiol 10:81. 2010
    ..A more complex structure was seen in this study when sequences from 378 specimens covering the hctB gene, which encodes Hc2, were compared...
  2. pmc SPRIT: Identifying horizontal gene transfer in rooted phylogenetic trees
    Tobias Hill
    Department of Neuroscience, Biomedical Centre, Uppsala University, Box 593, SE 751 24 Uppsala, Sweden
    BMC Evol Biol 10:42. 2010
    ..A number of heuristic and two exact approaches to identifying the minimum number of RSPRs have been proposed. This is the first implementation delivering an exact solution as well as the intermediate trees connecting the input trees...

    Systematic Biology, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC 20560 0163, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 270:407-15. 2003
    ..Finally, Pilidiophora and Hoplonemertea (with Malacobdella) form a monophyletic group, and we introduce the name Neonemertea to refer to this group. Palaeonemertea is found to be non-monophyletic and basal among nemerteans...
