Gene capture coupled with the next generation sequencing has become one of the favorable methods in subsampling genomes for phylogenomic studies. Many target gene markers have been developed in plants, sharks, frogs, reptiles and others, but few have been reported in the ray-finned fishes. Here, we identified a suite of “single-copy” protein coding sequence (CDS) markers through comparing eight fish genomes, and tested them empirically in 83 species (33 families and 11 orders) of ray-finned…

Multilocus DNA barcoding – Species Identification with Multilocus Data

This work introduces a more effective multi-locus barcoding framework that is based on gene capture and “next-generation” sequencing and predicts that, as the cost of DNA sequencing continues to fall, it will eclipse existing single- locus DNA barc coding methods as a means to better understand the diversity of the living world.



A practical approach to phylogenomics: the phylogeny of ray-finned fish (Actinopterygii) as a case study

A practical approach that systematically compares whole genome sequences to identify single-copy nuclear gene markers for inferring phylogeny is presented and is an improvement over traditional approaches because it uses genomic information and automates the process to identify large numbers of candidate makers.

A Phylogenomic Perspective on the Radiation of Ray-Finned Fishes Based upon Targeted Sequencing of Ultraconserved Elements (UCEs)

A genomic perspective on longstanding questions regarding the diversification of major groups of ray-finned fishes is provided through targeted enrichment of ultraconserved nuclear DNA elements (UCEs) and their flanking sequence and reveals that sequence capture of UCE regions and theirFlanking sequence offers enormous potential for resolving phylogenetic relationships within ray- finned fishes.

EvolMarkers: a database for mining exon and intron markers for evolution, ecology and conservation studies

A searchable database for developing single‐copy coding sequence (CDS) and exon‐primed‐intron‐crossing (EPIC) markers that is designed to work across a broad range of phylogenetic divergences and it is demonstrated the effectiveness of searching for CDS markers within annelids and how to find potentially useful intronic markers within the lizard Anolis.

Exon capture phylogenomics: efficacy across scales of divergence

Custom exon capture provides a complement to existing, more generic target capture methods and is a practical and robust option across low‐moderate levels of phylogenetic divergence.

A targeted next‐generation sequencing toolkit for exon‐based cichlid phylogenomics

The results show that the use of a third‐party laboratory coupled with accessible bioinformatics tools makes such phylogenomics projects feasible for research groups that lack direct access to genomic facilities.

Resolving postglacial phylogeography using high-throughput sequencing

This application of restriction site-associated DNA tags (RAD tags) reveals previously unresolved genetic structure and direction of evolution in the pitcher plant mosquito, Wyeomyia smithii, from a southern Appalachian Mountain refugium following recession of the Laurentide Ice Sheet at 22,000–19,000 B.P.

Anchored hybrid enrichment for massively high-throughput phylogenomics.

A new, cost-efficient, and rapid approach to obtaining data from hundreds of loci for potentially hundreds of individuals for deep and shallow phylogenetic studies, found that hybrid enrichment using conserved probes (anchored enrichment) can recover a large number of unlinked loci that are useful at a diversity of phylogenetic timescales.

An in silico comparison of reduced-representation and sequence-capture protocols for phylogenomics

While huge numbers of loci are probably not required for uncontroversial phylogenetic questions—for which practical considerations such as cost and ease of data generation/sharing/aggregating therefore become increasingly important—accurately modelling heterogeneous data remains as relevant as ever for the more recalcitrant problems.

An Exon-Capture System for the Entire Class Ophiuroidea

An exon-capture system for an entire class of marine invertebrates, the Ophiuroidea, built upon a phylogenetically diverse transcriptome foundation that will transform the understanding of ophiuroid evolution and biogeography is presented.

Target gene enrichment in the cyclophyllidean cestodes, the most diverse group of tapeworms

The results showed that the target gene tools yield data sets that provide robust inferences at a range of taxonomic scales in the Cyclophyllidea, consistent with the current consensus regarding cyclophyllides relationships.
