Nuclear genomic signals of the ‘microturbellarian’ roots of platyhelminth evolutionary innovation
Flatworms number among the most diverse invertebrate phyla and represent the most biomedically significant branch of the major bilaterian clade Spiralia, but to date, deep evolutionary relationshipsExpand
Spiralian Phylogeny Informs the Evolution of Microscopic Lineages
Despite rapid advances in the study of metazoan evolutionary history [1], phylogenomic analyses have so far neglected a number of microscopic lineages that possess a unique combination of charactersExpand
New insights into the phylogeny, systematics and DNA barcoding of Nemertea
Abstract. Although some clades of ribbon worms (phylum Nemertea) are consistently recovered with high support in molecular phylogenies, the placement and inter-relationships of some taxa haveExpand
Revisiting metazoan phylogeny with genomic sampling of all phyla
Proper biological interpretation of a phylogeny can sometimes hinge on the placement of key taxa—or fail when such key taxa are not sampled. In this light, we here present the first attempt toExpand
Evaluating topological conflict in centipede phylogeny using transcriptomic data sets.
Relationships between the five extant orders of centipedes have been considered solved based on morphology. Phylogenies based on samples of up to a few dozen genes have largely been congruent withExpand
Spiralian Phylogeny Informs the Evolution of Microscopic Lineages
(Current Biology 25, 2000–2006; August 3, 2015) The Figure 1 legend of this article contains an erroneous citation to a nonexistent Dryad accession intended to store large files such as the totalExpand
Support for a clade of Placozoa and Cnidaria in genes with minimal compositional bias
The phylogenetic placement of the morphologically simple placozoans is crucial to understanding the evolution of complex animal traits. Here, we examine the influence of adding new genomes fromExpand
Microbial mat controls on infaunal abundance and diversity in modern marine microbialites.
Microbialites are the most abundant macrofossils of the Precambrian. Decline in microbialite abundance and diversity during the terminal Proterozoic and early Phanerozoic has historically beenExpand
