    Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, South Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3PS, United Kingdom
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 96:7352-7. 1999
    ..These findings indicate that recombination may play a very significant role in shaping genetic diversity in dengue virus and, as such, have important implications for its biology and its control...

    M Worobey
    Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom
    J Virol 74:7666-70. 2000
    ..Recombination breakpoints were significantly more common in the noncoding region of the TT virus genome than in the coding region...

    Mol Biol Evol 18:1425-34. 2001
    ..On the other hand, the test did not reject the hypothesis of clonality when applied to a data set from the coding region of human mitochondrial DNA, despite its high level of ARH and homoplasy...

    Mol Biol Evol 18:987-94. 2001
    ..This view is supported by our analysis of gene sequences from vesicular stomatitis virus, which is considered a prototype RNA virus quasispecies. Our results are relevant to the evolution of RNA systems in general...
