signatures of positive selection in cytochrome b gene

Trying to find signatures of optimistic choice in cytochrome b gene related to subterranean life-style in fast-evolving arvicolines (Arvicolinae, Cricetidae, Rodentia) Background: Mitochondrial genes encode proteins concerned in oxidative phosphorylation. Variations in life-style and ecological area of interest could be immediately mirrored in metabolic efficiency. Subterranean rodents characterize a very good mannequin for testing hypotheses on adaptive evolution […]
