About this book

Covers recent developments in the field of 'deep level' phylogenetic inference of eukaryotes, especially with respect to the origin and evolution of eukaryotic cells and their organelles. Focuses on interpretation of data derived from molecular and cell biology, genome sequencing with respect to the timing and mechanism of eukaryogenesis, and the endosymbiotic events leading to mitochondria and plastids.


An Overview on Eukaryote Origins and Evolution. Excavata and the Origin of Amitochondriate Eukaryotes. The Evolutionary History of Plastids. Chromalveolate Diversity and Cell Megaevolution. Origin and Evolution of Animals, Fungi and their Unicellular Allies. Pitfalls in Tree Reconstruction and the Phylogeny of Eukaryotes. The Importance of Evolutionary Biology to the Analysis of Genome Data. Eukaryotic Phylogenyin the age of Genomics. Genome Phylogenies. Genomics of Microbial Nuclear
