Insect phylogenomics: new insights on the relationships of lower neopteran orders (Polyneoptera)
These relationships based on a new transcriptome data matrix covering almost all polyneopteran orders, except for Mantophasmatodea, Grylloblattodea and Mantodea support a monophyletic Polyneoptera, corroborating previous findings and rejecting the paraphyletic lower neopteran group suggested by various morphological characters and rRNA gene analyses.
MicroRNAs and phylogenomics resolve the relationships of Tardigrada and suggest that velvet worms are the sister group of Arthropoda
The study confirms the monophyly of the legged ecdysozoans, shows that past support for a Tardigrada + Nematoda group was due to long-branch attraction, and suggests that the velvet worms are the sister group to the arthropods.
Exploring Phylogenetic Relationships within Myriapoda and the Effects of Matrix Composition and Occupancy on Phylogenomic Reconstruction
Results indicate that a high percentage of ribosomal proteins in the most complete matrices can act in concert to compromise the estimated relationships within the ingroup, and discuss the implications of these findings in the context of the ever more prevalent quest for completeness in phylogenomic studies.
Pancrustacean phylogeny in the light of new phylogenomic data: support for Remipedia as the possible sister group of Hexapoda.
This is the first time that a sister group relationship of Remipedia and Hexapoda has been inferred using a comprehensive phylogenomic data set that is based on EST data, and shows that selecting data subsets with increased overall signal can help to identify and prevent artifacts in phylogenetic analyses.
Exploring phylogenomic relationships within Myriapoda: should high matrix occupancy be the goal?
Within centipedes, all orders were well supported, but two nodes remained in conflict in the different analyses despite dense taxon sampling at the family level, situating the order Scolopendromorpha as sister group to a morphologically-anomalous grouping of Lithobiomorpha + Geophilmorpha in a subset of analyses.
Origins and early evolution of arthropods
With respect to the interrelationships of the three extant clades of Panarthropoda, a sister group relationship between Onychophora and Arthropoda is endorsed by transcriptomics and microRNAs, although this hypothesis forces homoplasy in characters of the segmental ganglia that are shared by tardigrades and arthropods.
A series of rigorously vetted calibration fossils for arthropod evolutionary history, taking into account recently published guidelines for best practice in fossil calibration are presented, resulting in 80 fossil calibrations for 102 clades.
Tetraconatan phylogeny with special focus on Malacostraca and Branchiopoda: highlighting the strength of taxon-specific matrices in phylogenomics
A taxon-rich phylogenomic dataset focusing on crustacean lineages based solely on genomes and new-generation Illumina-generated transcriptomes, including 89 representatives of Tetraconata is assembled, which constitutes, to the authors' knowledge, the first phylogenomic study specifically addressing internal relationships of Malacostraca and Branchiopoda.


Arthropod relationships revealed by phylogenomic analysis of nuclear protein-coding sequences
This work presents strongly supported results from likelihood, Bayesian and parsimony analyses of over 41 kilobases of aligned DNA sequence from 62 single-copy nuclear protein-coding genes from 75 arthropod species, providing a statistically well-supported phylogenetic framework for the largest animal phylum.

Arthropod phylogeny revisited, with a focus on crustacean relationships.
A phylogenomic approach to resolve the arthropod tree of life.
It is shown that phylogenomic data can substantially advance the understanding of arthropod evolution and resolve several conflicts among existing hypotheses.
Mitochondrial genome data alone are not enough to unambiguously resolve the relationships of Entognatha, Insecta and Crustacea sensu lato (Arthropoda)
It is concluded that the relationships of the extant arthropod groups as inferred by mitochondrial genomes are highly vulnerable to outgroup choice, data treatment and gene choice, and no consistent alternative hypothesis of Collembola's relationships is supported.
Phylogenetic analysis of mitochondrial protein coding genes confirms the reciprocal paraphyly of Hexapoda and Crustacea
The finding of the reciprocal paraphyly of Hexapoda and Crustacea suggests an evolutionary scenario in which the acquisition of the hexapod condition may have occurred several times independently in lineages descending from different crustacean-like ancestors, possibly as a consequence of the process of terrestrialization.
Myriapod Monophyly and Relationships Among Myriapod Classes Based on Nearly Complete 28S and 18S rDNA Sequences
This study combined nearly complete 28S and 18S ribosomal RNA gene sequences to estimate the phylogenetic position of Myriapoda and phylogenetic relationships among four myriapod classes and yielded moderate to strong support for the monophyly of MyRIapoda.
Mitochondrial Genes Collectively Suggest the Paraphyly of Crustacea with Respect to Insecta
A phylogenetic analysis using amino acid sequences of the seven corresponding polypeptides supports a sister-taxon status for mollusks–annelid and arthropods and suggests that crustaceans are paraphyletic with respect to insects.
On the phylogenetic position of insects in the Pancrustacea clade
Molecular synapomorphies in low homoplastic regions are reported, which support the clade Hexapoda + Branchiopoda + Maxillopoda and the monophyletic Malacostraca including Phyllocarida.
