The Tree of Life and a New Classification of Bony Fishes
The tree of life of fishes is in a state of flux because we still lack a comprehensive phylogeny that includes all major groups. The situation is most critical for a large clade of spiny-finnedExpand

A practical approach to phylogenomics: the phylogeny of ray-finned fish (Actinopterygii) as a case study
BackgroundMolecular systematics occupies one of the central stages in biology in the genomic era, ushered in by unprecedented progress in DNA technology. The inference of organismal phylogeny is nowExpand

Optimal data partitioning and a test case for ray-finned fishes (Actinopterygii) based on ten nuclear loci.
Data partitioning, the combined phylogenetic analysis of homogeneous blocks of data, is a common strategy used to accommodate heterogeneities in complex multilocus data sets. Variation inExpand

Comprehensive phylogeny of ray-finned fishes (Actinopterygii) based on transcriptomic and genomic data
Significance Ray-finned fishes form the largest and most diverse group of vertebrates. Establishing their phylogenetic relationships is a critical step to explaining their diversity. We compiled theExpand

Multi-locus phylogenetic analysis reveals the pattern and tempo of bony fish evolution
Over half of all vertebrates are “fishes”, which exhibit enormous diversity in morphology, physiology, behavior, reproductive biology, and ecology. Investigation of fundamental areas of vertebrateExpand

Mitochondrial DNA‐inferred population structure and demographic history of the mitten crab (Eriocheir sensu stricto) found along the coast of mainland China
The mitten crab, Eriocheir sensu stricto, is economically important in East Asia, although it is an invasive species in Europe and North America. Little is known about its population structure andExpand

Capturing protein-coding genes across highly divergent species.
DNA hybridization capture combined with next generation sequencing can be used to determine the sequences of hundreds of target genes across hundreds of individuals in a single experiment. However,Expand

Addressing gene tree discordance and non-stationarity to resolve a multi-locus phylogeny of the flatfishes (Teleostei: Pleuronectiformes).
Non-homogeneous processes and, in particular, base compositional non-stationarity have long been recognized as a critical source of systematic error. But only a small fraction of current molecularExpand

Molecular phylogeny of Squaliformes and first occurrence of bioluminescence in sharks
BackgroundSqualiform sharks represent approximately 27 % of extant shark diversity, comprising more than 130 species with a predominantly deep-dwelling lifestyle. Many Squaliform species are highlyExpand
