    Mol Phylogenet Evol 65:251-8. 2012
    ..We present the first account of sigma virus-like NIRVs and the first example of NIRV expression in a model animal system, and therefore provide a platform for further study of the possible functions of NIRVs in animal hosts...

    Derek J Taylor
    Department of Biological Sciences, The State University of New York at Buffalo, Buffalo, NY 14260, USA
    BMC Evol Biol 11:336. 2011
    ..We also estimated the age of filovirus VP35-like gene integrations and tested the phylogenetic hypotheses that there is a eutherian mammal clade and a marsupial/ebolavirus/Marburgvirus dichotomy for filoviruses...
  3. pmc Virus-host co-evolution under a modified nuclear genetic code
    Derek J Taylor
    Department of Biological Sciences, The State University of New York at Buffalo, Buffalo, NY, USA
    Peerj 1:e50. 2013
    ..Viral avoidance of the host's modified codon and host co-option of a protein from totiviruses suggest that RNA viruses co-evolved with yeasts that underwent a major evolutionary transition from the standard genetic code...
