Main Question or Discussion Point
What fraction of the "King-Phillip-...-good-soup" Linnaean taxonomy has been "translated" into "clades/cladograms?"
Don't understand what this is."King-Phillip-...-good-soup"
OK, mnemonic! That probably would have helped me in some class."King(dom)-Ph(ylum)illip-c(lass)alled-o(rder)ut-f(?)or-g(enus)ood-s(pecies)oup."
Yeah, I was drawing a total blank last night putting the question together as far as filling in between "King Phillip" and "good soup," but figured the life science geeks/nerds could fill it in for the physical/earth science geek/nerd, me.OK, mnemonic!
Don't know what fraction.what fraction of extant, identified biota have had their DNA sequenced?
The first name is the name of the genus hippglossus, should be capitalized Hippglossus.is hippglossus hippoglossus, Atlantic halibut, a "kissing cousin" to hippoglossus stenolepsis, the Pacific halibut, or just an isolated population on its way to becoming a separate species
It might have happen since they are species of economic import (being fished or perhaps farmed).has the sequencing been done
Thank you for that tip; who knows, I might even be able to remember it.The first name is the name of the genus hippglossus, should be capitalized Hippglossus.
The second names, hippoglossus or stenolepsis are species names and should not be capitalized.
The "23 and me" marketing finally registered on my consciousness as "possibly" being a manifestation of excess capacity as far as auto-analyzers/gene sequencing goes, and that would imply, or allow my inference, obviously mistaken, that everything else has been done.It might have happen since they are species of economic import (being fished or perhaps farmed).
A quick google search shows some articles about some sequence information, but maybe not a full genome sequence.
The full sequence would have more information and probably provide better phylogenetic information, but partial sequence info can be quite informative.
