Zebrafish, medaka, pufferfish and cichilds are fish models for development, genomics and comparative genetics studies, although their phylogenetic relationships have not been tested rigorously. The results of phylogenomic analysis based on 20 nuclear protein-coding genes confirmed the basal placement of zebrafish in the fish phylogeny but revealed an unexpected relationship among the other three species, contrary to traditionally held systematic views based on morphology. Our analyses show that medaka (Beloniformes) and cichlids (Perciformes) appear to be more closely related to each other than either of themis to pufferfish (Tetraodontiformes), suggesting that a reinterpretation of some findings in comparative biology might be required. In addition, phylogenomic analyses showthat fish typically havemore copies of nuclear genes than land vertebrates, supporting the fish-specific genome duplication hypothesis.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-24T17:31:20Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Ortí, Guillermo</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-03-24T17:31:20Z</dc:date> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Meyer, Axel</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Chen, Wei-Jen</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Meyer, Axel</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 Generic</dc:rights> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2004</dcterms:issued> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
