Correlates of substitution rate variation in mammalian protein-coding sequences

Welch, John J.; Bininda-Emonds, Olaf RP; Bromham, Lindell


BACKGROUND: Rates of molecular evolution in different lineages can vary widely, and some of this variation might be predictable from aspects of species' biology. Investigating such predictable rate variation can help us to understand the causes of molecular evolution, and could also help to improve molecular dating methods. Here we present a comprehensive study of the life history correlates of substitution rate variation across the mammals, comparing results for mitochondrial and nuclear...[Show more]
