    • A refined model of the genomic basis for phenotypic variation in vertebrate hemostasis. 

      Bertelsen, MF; da Fonseca, RR; Gilbert, M Thomas P; Jarvis, Erich David; Kristensen, AT; Ribeiro, Ângela M; Zepeda-Mendoza, ML (BMC Evol Biol, 2015-06-30)
      BACKGROUND: Hemostasis is a defense mechanism that enhances an organism's survival by minimizing blood loss upon vascular injury. In vertebrates, hemostasis has been evolving with the cardio-vascular and hemodynamic systems ...
    • Comparative genomics reveals insights into avian genome evolution and adaptation 

      Alfaro-Núñez, A; Alström, P; An, N; Antunes, A; Bertelsen, MF; Borges, R; Braun, Edward L; ... (106 authors) (SCIENCE, 2014-12-12)
    • 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. ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
