    • Comparative genomics based on massive parallel transcriptome sequencing reveals patterns of substitution and selection across 10 bird species. 

      Backström, N; Balakrishnan, CN; Day, L; Edwards, SV; Ellegren, Hans; Janes, DE; Jarvis, Erich David; ... (13 authors) (Mol Ecol, 2010-03)
      Next-generation sequencing technology provides an attractive means to obtain large-scale sequence data necessary for comparative genomic analysis. To analyse the patterns of mutation rate variation and selection intensity ...
    • Dynamic evolution of base composition: causes and consequences in avian phylogenomics. 

      Ellegren, Hans; Jarvis, Erich David; Künstner, A; Nabholz, B; Wang, R (Mol Biol Evol, 2011-08)
      Resolving the phylogenetic relationships among birds is a classical problem in systematics, and this is particularly so when it comes to understanding the relationships among Neoaves. Previous phylogenetic inference of birds ...
