This paper provides a method for identifying "sufficiently rich" simple groups of finite Morley rank with simple algebraic groups over algebraically closed fields. Special attention is given to the even type case, and the paper contains a number of structural results about simple groups of finite Morley rank and even type. (C) 2007 Elsevier Inc.
