Phylogenetics is the study of the ... diagram that illustrates the interrelationship of various viruses. The phylogenetic tree also shows the timeline of the travels and mutations of various ...

Study uncovers cause of flu epidemics

... sampled between 1918 and 2006 and representing 17 different countries on five continents. Using the genome data, the researchers constructed phylogenetic trees representing evolutionary relationships across all eight genome segments of the virus. Big differences in the shapes of these eight trees ...

Novel virus detection identifies new viruses in study of respiratory infections and asthma attacks

Evoprinter, a multigenomic comparative tool for rapid identification of functionally important DNA

... and its transcriptional regulators. This cross-species comparison, termed phylogenetic footprinting, is based on the hypothesis that functionally important sequences evolve at a significantly slower rate than nonfunctional DNA. phylogenetic footprinting has been used successfully to discover multispecies-conserved ...

Evolution of HIV from African Greek Monkeys

... into grivets or northeast into grivets and then south into vervets. Wertheim said, "I was surprised that the geography could explain the virus phylogenetic tree, how well it fit. You just look and -- there it is!" The UA researchers suggest that in the border zones where two African green monkey ...

Color Vision Drove Primates to Develop Red Skin and Hair, Study Finds

The researchers then used a phylogenetic tree representing the evolutionary relationships among all the primate species under study to test hypotheses about the order in which the traits of ...

Evolution of Plant Life Cycle

... "As humans, we're always interested in knowing where we came from and why we are different from other primates," Qiu said. "Now that we know, from phylogenetic analyses, that our closest relative is the chimpanzee, we can compare the chimpanzee genome with our own genome and compare the chimpanzee brain with ...
