Background of the Molecular Phylogenetic Studies of the Carabid Ground Beetles
In 1968, one of the authors, Syozo Osawa (S.O.), and his collaborators found that ribosomal protein composition is different in each bacterial species when analyzed with carboxymethyl-cellulose column chromatography. At that time, he was not aware of the now well-known work done by Zuckerkandl and Pauling (1965) on the molecular evolution of hemoglobin molecules, and the neutral theory of molecular evolution developed by Kimura (1968).
