    • 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 ...
    • Sequencing three crocodilian genomes to illuminate the evolution of archosaurs and amniotes. 

      Abzhanov, A; Braun, Edward L; Burgess, SC; Castoe, TA; Chong, Amanda Y; Cooksey, AM; Crawford, NG; ... (47 authors) (Genome Biol, 2012-01-31)
      The International Crocodilian Genomes Working Group (ICGWG) will sequence and assemble the American alligator (Alligator mississippiensis), saltwater crocodile (Crocodylus porosus) and Indian gharial (Gavialis gangeticus) ...
    • 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 ...
