Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on studies of the evolutionary genomics of molluscans. It provides an overview of the state of molluscan mitochondrial genomics and outlines the promise of a broadening of this data set. It explains how comparisons of mitochondrial genomes have reconstructed the relationships among Annelida, Sipuncula, and Mollusca and describes upcoming projects involving the sequencing of whole mollusc nuclear genome.

Keywords: molluscans; evolutionary genomics; mitochondrial genomics; Annelida; Sipuncula; Mollusca; nuclear genome sequencing
