    Cedric Berney
    Department of Zoology and Animal Biology, University of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland
    J Mol Evol 57:S120-7. 2003
    ..Our study confirms the utility of SSU rDNA as a phylogenetic marker of megaevolutionary history, provided that the artifacts due to the heterogeneity of substitution rates in ribosomal genes are circumvented...

    Proc Biol Sci 273:1867-72. 2006
    ..Our results indicate that most Proterozoic fossils of possible eukaryotic origin cannot be confidently assigned to extant lineages and should therefore not be used as calibration points in molecular dating...
  4. ncbi Phylogenetic position of Gromia oviformis Dujardin inferred from nuclear-encoded small subunit ribosomal DNA
    Fabien Burki
    Department of Zoology and Animal Biology, University of Geneva, Chene Bougeries Geneva, Switzerland
    Protist 153:251-60. 2002
    ..Because the Cercozoa are related to the Foraminifera based on other molecular data, we propose that most protists possessing filopodia, reticulopodia and axopodia have a common origin...
  5. ncbi Small-subunit ribosomal RNA gene sequences of Phaeodarea challenge the monophyly of Haeckel's Radiolaria
    Stephane Polet
    Department of Zoology and Animal Biology, University of Geneva, Sciences III, CH 1211 Geneva 4, Switzerland
    Protist 155:53-63. 2004
    ..Our study also confirms the common origin of Acantharea and Polycystinea, which form a sister-group to the Cercozoa, and allows a phylogenetic reinterpretation of the morphological features of the three radiolarian groups...

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 100:11494-8. 2003
    ..Our findings indicate that the early Foraminifera were an important component of Neoproterozoic protistan community, whose ecological complexity was probably much higher than has been generally accepted...
