      Adam, I; Arnold, AP; Backström, N; Balakrishnan, CN; Batzer, MA; Birkhead, T; Blatti, Charles A; ... (82 authors) (Nature, 2010-04-01)
      The zebra finch is an important model organism in several fields with unique relevance to human neuroscience. Like other songbirds, the zebra finch communicates through learned vocalizations, an ability otherwise documented ...
    • Three crocodilian genomes reveal ancestral patterns of evolution among archosaurs. 

      Armstrong, J; Braun, Edward L; Breen, M; Brochu, CA; Burgess, SC; Caballero, J; Capella-Gutiérrez, S; ... (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), ...
    • Two Antarctic penguin genomes reveal insights into their evolutionary history and molecular changes related to the Antarctic environment.
