Major patterns of higher teleostean phylogenies: a new perspective based on 100 complete mitochondrial DNA sequences.
TLDR
Many unexpected, but highly supported relationships were found within the Percomorpha, being highly promising for the next investigative step towards resolution of this remarkably diversified group of teleosts. Expand
Mitogenomic exploration of higher teleostean phylogenies: a case study for moderate-scale evolutionary genomics with 38 newly determined complete mitochondrial DNA sequences.
TLDR
It is concluded that purposeful higher-density taxonomic sampling, subsequent sequencing efforts, and phylogenetic analyses of their mitogenomes may be decisive in resolving persistent controversies over higher-level relationships of teleosts, the most diversified group of all vertebrates, comprising over 23,500 extant species.

MitoFish and MitoAnnotator: A Mitochondrial Genome Database of Fish with an Accurate and Automatic Annotation Pipeline
TLDR
MitoFish contains re-annotations of previously sequenced fish mitogenomes, enabling researchers to refer to them when they find annotations that are likely to be erroneous or while conducting comparative mitogenomic analyses. Expand
How meaningful are Bayesian support values?
TLDR
This study used an empirical example based on 100 mitochondrial genomes from higher teleost fishes to compare the accuracy of parsimony-based jackknife values with Bayesian support values, and found that the higher BayesianSupport values are inappropriate and should not be interpreted as probabilities that clades are correctly resolved.

Body plan convergence in the evolution of skates and rays (Chondrichthyes: Batoidea).
TLDR
A resolved, robust and time-calibrated batoid phylogeny is constructed using mitochondrial genomes, nuclear genes, and fossils, sampling densely across taxa and finding body plan convergence appears to be widespread in batoids. Expand
Basal actinopterygian relationships: a mitogenomic perspective on the phylogeny of the "ancient fish".
TLDR
Mitogenomic data strongly supported not only the monophyly of the teleosts (osteoglossomorphs and above), but also a sister-group relationship between theteleosts and a clade comprising the acipenseriforms, lepisosteids, and Amia, with the polypteriforms occupying the most basal position in the actinopterygian phylogeny. Expand
Phylogeny and polyploidy: resolving the classification of cyprinine fishes (Teleostei: Cypriniformes).
TLDR
The hexaploid African Labeobarbus & allies and Western Asian Capoeta are likely derived from two independent hybridization events between their respective maternal tetraploid ancestors and Cyprinion. Expand
Phylogenetic classification of bony fishes
TLDR
This version of the phylogenetic classification of bony fishes is substantially improved, providing resolution for more taxa than previous versions, based on more densely sampled phylogenetic trees. Expand
MiFish, a set of universal PCR primers for metabarcoding environmental DNA from fishes: detection of more than 230 subtropical marine species
TLDR
The metabarcoding approach presented here is non-invasive, more efficient, more cost-effective and more sensitive than the traditional survey methods and has the potential to serve as an alternative tool for biodiversity monitoring that revolutionizes natural resource management and ecological studies of fish communities on larger spatial and temporal scales. Expand
Mitogenomic Evolution and Interrelationships of the Cypriniformes (Actinopterygii: Ostariophysi): The First Evidence Toward Resolution of Higher-Level Relationships of the World’s Largest Freshwater
TLDR
The present study represents the first attempt toward resolution of the higher-level relationships of the world’s largest freshwater-fish clade based on whole mitochondrial genome sequences from 53 cypriniforms plus 6 outgroups, and it is advocated that RY-coding, which takes only transversions into account, effectively removes this likely “noise” from the data set and avoids the apparent lack of signal by retaining all available positions in the dataSet.
