    • Avianbase: a community resource for bird genomics. 

      Eöry, Lél; Gilbert, M Thomas P; Li, Cai; Li, Bo; Archibald, Alan; Aken, Bronwen L; Zhang, Guojie; ... (10 authors) (Genome Biol, 2015-01-29)
      Giving access to sequence and annotation data for genome assemblies is important because, while facilitating research, it places both assembly and annotation quality under scrutiny, resulting in improvements to both. Therefore ...
    • Comparative genomic data of the Avian Phylogenomics Project. 

      Zhang, Guojie; Li, Bo; Li, Cai; Gilbert, M Thomas P; Jarvis, Erich D; Wang, Jun; Wang, Jun; ... (8 authors) (2014)
      BACKGROUND: The evolutionary relationships of modern birds are among the most challenging to understand in systematic biology and have been debated for centuries. To address this challenge, we assembled or collected the ...
    • Genetic variants in RORA and DNMT1 associated with cutaneous melanoma survival. 

      Li, Bo; Wang, Yanru; Xu, Yinghui; Liu, Hongliang; Bloomer, Wendy; Zhu, Dakai; Amos, Christopher I; ... (12 authors) (International journal of cancer, 2018-06)
      Cutaneous melanoma (CM) is considered as a steroid hormone-related malignancy. However, few studies have evaluated the roles of genetic variants encoding steroid hormone receptor genes and their related regulators (SHR-related ...
    • Genomic signatures of near-extinction and rebirth of the crested ibis and other endangered bird species 

      Li, Shengbin; Li, Bo; Cheng, Cheng; Xiong, Zijun; Liu, Qingbo; Lai, Jianghua; Carey, Hannah V; ... (33 authors) (GENOME BIOLOGY, 2014)
      BACKGROUND: Nearly one-quarter of all avian species is either threatened or nearly threatened. Of these, 73 species are currently being rescued from going extinct in wildlife sanctuaries. One of the previously most ...
    • High-coverage sequencing and annotated assemblies of the budgerigar genome. 

      Ganapathy, Ganeshkumar; Howard, Jason T; Ward, James M; Li, Jianwen; Li, Bo; Li, Yingrui; Xiong, Yingqi; ... (24 authors) (Gigascience, 2014)
      BACKGROUND: Parrots belong to a group of behaviorally advanced vertebrates and have an advanced ability of vocal learning relative to other vocal-learning birds. They can imitate human speech, synchronize their body movements ...
    • Phylogenomic analyses data of the avian phylogenomics project. 

      Jarvis, Erich D; Mirarab, Siavash; Aberer, Andre J; Li, Bo; Houde, Peter; Li, Cai; Ho, Simon YW; ... (28 authors) (Gigascience, 2015)
      BACKGROUND: Determining the evolutionary relationships among the major lineages of extant birds has been one of the biggest challenges in systematic biology. To address this challenge, we assembled or collected the genomes ...
    • Whole-genome analyses resolve early branches in the tree of life of modern birds. 

      Jarvis, Erich D; Mirarab, Siavash; Aberer, Andre J; Li, Bo; Houde, Peter; Li, Cai; Ho, Simon YW; ... (106 authors) (Science, 2014-12-12)
      To better determine the history of modern birds, we performed a genome-scale phylogenetic analysis of 48 species representing all orders of Neoaves using phylogenomic methods created to handle genome-scale data. We recovered ...
