    S V Edwards
    Department of Zoology, University of Washington, Seatle, WA 98195, USA
    Mol Biol Evol 17:1384-95. 2000
    ..Thus, this sequence exhibits some of the genomic streamlining expected for avian as compared with mammalian genomes, but is not as densely packed with functional genes as is the chicken Mhc...

    D Garrigan
    Department of Zoology, University of Washington, USA
    Mol Biol Evol 16:1599-606. 1999
    ..Additionally, the observation that divergent exon alleles share identical intron sequence supports the conclusion of disassociation of exon and intron evolutionary histories by recombination...

    Genomics 75:26-34. 2001
    ..The high gene density of this cosmid confirms similar findings for the chicken Mhc, but the segment duplications and diversity of retroelements resembles mammalian sequences...

    Syst Biol 47:589-603. 1998
    ..We suggest that the bushlike nature of many higher-level phylogenies in birds makes estimating the dynamics of DNA evolution less sensitive to tree topology but also less susceptible to improvement via weighting...
