Dear colleagues,

allow me to point you to our recent publication:

Title: Evolutionary insights into scleractinian corals using comparative genomic hybridizations

Authors: Aranda  Manuel, DeSalvo K Michael, Bayer  Till, Medina  Monica, Voolstra R Christian, 

Journal: BMC Genomics


Here, we found indications for a potentially important role of the coral mitochondrion/mitochondrial-encoded genes in the evolution of the robust coral clade by analyzing differences in divergence of mitochondrial and nuclear encoded genes. Accordingly, this needs to be taken into account when using mitochondrial markers for scleractinian phylogenies.

Thank you,
