Disease relevance of Classification


High impact information on Classification

  • Relative rate tests show that LW Rh2 is evolving at a slower rate than LW Rh1 and, therefore, may be a useful marker for higher-level hymenopteran systematics [2].
  • The implications of these findings for angiosperm systematics, the conservation of AP3 and PI gene function, and the evolution of the ABC program are discussed [3].
  • In an effort to establish a suitable alternative to the widely used 18S rRNA system for molecular systematics of fungi, we examined the nuclear gene RPB2, encoding the second largest subunit of RNA polymerase II [4].
  • The rate and pattern of DNA evolution of ependymin, a single-copy gene coding for a highly expressed glycoprotein in the brain matrix of teleost fishes, is characterized and its phylogenetic utility for fish systematics is assessed [5].
  • Direct sequencing of polymerase chain reaction products is now an expanding area of plant systematics and evolution [6].

Biological context of Classification


Associations of Classification with chemical compounds

  • Sequences of 777 bp of mtDNA-ND5 locus were determined in order to shed light on the molecular systematics and evolution of the "Apollo" butterflies [12].
  • Molecular systematics, zoogeography, and evolutionary ecology of the atlantic parrotfish genus Sparisoma [13].
  • The joint use of nitrogen and boron isotope systematics in each context deciphers the origin of NO3 in the groundwater and allows a semi-quantification of the contributions of the respective pollution sources (mineral fertilizers, wastewater, and animal manure) [14].
  • Structural systematics for o-C(6)H(4)XY ligands with X,Y= O, NH, and S donor atoms. o-iminoquinone and o-iminothioquinone complexes of ruthenium and osmium [15].
  • Obtaining data resulting from application of a sole technique isolatedly may not provide significant information from Bacterial Systematics viewpoint [16].
