    • Comparative genomics reveals insights into avian genome evolution and adaptation. 

      Zhang, Guojie; Li, Cai; Li, Qiye; Li, Bo; Larkin, Denis M; Lee, Chul; Storz, Jay F; ... (107 authors) (Science, 2014-12-12)
      Birds are the most species-rich class of tetrapod vertebrates and have wide relevance across many research fields. We explored bird macroevolution using full genomes from 48 avian species representing all major extant clades. ...
    • Sequencing three crocodilian genomes to illuminate the evolution of archosaurs and amniotes. 

      St John, John A; Braun, Edward L; Isberg, Sally R; Miles, Lee G; Chong, Amanda Y; Gongora, Jaime; Dalzell, Pauline; ... (48 authors) (Genome Biol, 2012-01-31)
      The International Crocodilian Genomes Working Group (ICGWG) will sequence and assemble the American alligator (Alligator mississippiensis), saltwater crocodile (Crocodylus porosus) and Indian gharial (Gavialis gangeticus) ...
    • Three crocodilian genomes reveal ancestral patterns of evolution among archosaurs. 

      Green, Richard E; Braun, Edward L; Armstrong, Joel; Earl, Dent; Nguyen, Ngan; Hickey, Glenn; Vandewege, Michael W; ... (55 authors) (Science, 2014-12-12)
      To provide context for the diversification of archosaurs--the group that includes crocodilians, dinosaurs, and birds--we generated draft genomes of three crocodilians: Alligator mississippiensis (the American alligator), ...
