Abstract

The evolutionary relationships among polyplacophoran mollusks remain very poorly understood due to the lack modern molecular studies. Here, we obtained full mitochondrial genomes of several species representing main chiton linages and are analyzed in a probabilistic framework. We expect to resolve the relationships among main chiton lineages as well as to estimate divergence times using Bayesian molecular dating.
