    • 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 ...
    • Phylotastic! Making tree-of-life knowledge accessible, reusable and convenient. 

      Stoltzfus, Arlin; Lapp, Hilmar; Matasci, Naim; Deus, Helena; Sidlauskas, Brian; Zmasek, Christian M; Vaidya, Gaurav; ... (28 authors) (BMC Bioinformatics, 2013-05-13)
      BACKGROUND: Scientists rarely reuse expert knowledge of phylogeny, in spite of years of effort to assemble a great "Tree of Life" (ToL). A notable exception involves the use of Phylomatic, which provides tools to generate ...
    • Response to Comment on "Whole-genome analyses resolve early branches in the tree of life of modern birds". 

      Cracraft, Joel; Houde, Peter; Ho, Simon YW; Mindell, David P; Fjeldså, Jon; Lindow, Bent; Edwards, Scott V; ... (14 authors) (Science, 2015-09-25)
      Mitchell et al. argue that divergence-time estimates for our avian phylogeny were too young because of an "inappropriate" maximum age constraint for the most recent common ancestor of modern birds and that, as a result, ...
    • 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 ...
