Do genomic datasets resolve the correct relationship among the placental, marsupial and monotreme lineages?
Did the mammal radiation arise through initial divergence of prototherians from a common ancestor of metatherians and eutherians, the Theria hypothesis, or of eutherians from a common ancestor of metatherians and prototherians, the Marsupionta hypothesis? Molecular phylogenetic analyses of point substitutions applied to this problem have been contradictory mtDNA-encoded sequences supported Marsupionta, nuclear-encoded sequences and RY (purinepyrimidine)- recoded mtDNA supported Theria.
