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

      Alfaro-Núñez, A; Alström, P; An, N; Antunes, A; Avian Genome Consortium; Bertelsen, MF; Borges, R; ... (106 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. ...
    • Complex evolutionary trajectories of sex chromosomes across bird taxa. 

      An, N; Bachtrog, D; Gilbert, M Thomas P; Huang, Q; Jarvis, Erich David; Zhang, G; Zhang, J; ... (8 authors) (Science, 2014-12-12)
      Sex-specific chromosomes, like the W of most female birds and the Y of male mammals, usually have lost most genes owing to a lack of recombination. We analyze newly available genomes of 17 bird species representing the avian ...
    • Whole-genome analyses resolve early branches in the tree of life of modern birds. 

      Aberer, AJ; Alfaro-Núñez, A; Alström, P; Bailey, T; Barker, FK; Bayzid, MS; Bertelsen, MF; ... (105 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 ...
