Genome size and chromosome number in velvet worms (Onychophora)

Jeffery, Nicholas W; Oliveira, I S; Gregory, T Ryan; Rowell, David M; Mayer, Georg


The Onychophora (velvet worms) represents a small group of invertebrates (~180 valid species), which is commonly united with Tardigrada and Arthropoda in a clade called Panarthropoda. As with the majority of invertebrate taxa, genome size data are very limited for the Onychophora, with only one previously published estimate. Here we use both flow cytometry and Feulgen image analysis densitometry to provide genome size estimates for seven species of velvet worms from both major subgroups,...[Show more]
