    • Early Mesozoic Coexistence of Amniotes and Hepadnaviridae 

      Braun, Edward L; Ellegren, Hans; Fritz, Uwe; Green, Richard E; Kehlmaier, Christian; Ray, David A; Suh, Alexander; ... (8 authors) (PLoS Genet, 2014-12-11)
      <title>Author Summary</title> Viruses are not known to leave physical fossil traces, which makes our understanding of their evolutionary prehistory crucially dependent on the detection of endogenous viruses. Ancient endogenous ...
    • Phylogenomic analyses data of the avian phylogenomics project. 

      Aberer, AJ; Alfaro-Núñez, A; Avian Phylogenomics Consortium; Braun, Edward L; Burt, D; Cracraft, J; da Fonseca, RR; ... (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 ...
    • 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), ...
    • 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 ...
