Abstract: DNA sequences, because of their disparity in the rate of evolution,are suitable for phylogenetic study at different taxonomic levels. It is, therfore, the most significant process to select an sppropriate DNA region to address a certain phylogenetic issues. Based on previous data and our own study, the suitable range of some DNA sequences that are commonly used in current molecular phylogenetic study in mainly focused in this review.

Key words: DNA sequences
