I think many of you could be aware of the relationship between storks and Vultures
If you have time you can read the link provided above.But you might need to know about the different computational phylogeny methods to understand the paper.
Anyways do you think such a "relationship" is possible.Or do you think it might be a flaw in the method of alignment used or the different methods used to get the phylogenetic tree.
Or do you think such relationship is possible.
I have also encountered with a similar problem.Thats why i wanted to get some suggestions.......
I have also posted the same topic in Evolution forum to get a wider spectrum of answers.
