Phylogeny News and Research

RSS
Phylogenetic analysis explores the evolutionary relationships between organisms and is a vital foundation for microbial studies. The development of reliable phylogenetic trees is an important step in developing new treatments and discovering the origins of eukaryotes, prokaryotes and archaea.
