Molecular Phylogeny of Microorganisms

Molecular Phylogeny of Microorganisms Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Molecular and other biologists ponder the evolution of microorganisms in light of cheap gene sequencing and the acceptance of lateral gene transfer as a relevant source of genetic variation. They discuss a historical overview of concepts about phylogeny of microorganisms, multi-locus sequence analysis and bacterial species phylogeny estimation, the phyla of cultured and uncultured prokaryotes, applications of conserved indels for understanding microbial phylogeny, horizontal gene transfer and the formation of groups of microorganisms, endosymbiosis and the evolution of plastids, and other topics.

Synopsis:

A proper understanding of the diversity, systematics, and nomenclature of microbes is increasingly important in many branches of biological science. The molecular approach to phylogenetic analysis - pioneered by Carl Woese in the 1970s and leading to the three-domain model (Archaea, Bacteria, Eucarya) - has revolutionized our thinking about evolution in the microbial world. The technological innovation of modern molecular biology and the rapid advancement in computational science have led to a flood of nucleic acid sequence information, bioinformatic tools, and phylogenetic inference methods. Phylogenetic analysis has long played a central role in microbiology and the emerging fields of comparative genomics and phylogenomics require substantial knowledge and understanding of phylogenetic analysis and computational methods. In this book, leading scientists from around the world explore current concepts in molecular phylogeny and their application with respect to microorganisms. The auth
