Whole genome sequencing is helping generate robust phylogenetic hypotheses for a range of taxonomic groups that were previously recalcitrant to classical molecular phylogenetic approaches. As a case study, we performed a shallow shotgun sequencing of eight species in the tropical tree family Chrysobalanaceae to retrieve large fragments of high‐copy number DNA regions and test the potential of these regions for phylogeny reconstruction. We were able to assemble the nuclear ribosomal cluster… Expand
The contribution of mitochondrial metagenomics to large-scale data mining and phylogenetic analysis of Coleoptera.
TLDR
The combination of data mining and metagenomic sequencing of bulk samples provided the largest phylogenetic tree of Coleoptera to date, which represents a summary of existing phylogenetic knowledge and a defensible tree of great utility, in particular for studies at the intra-familial level, despite some shortcomings for resolving basal nodes.

Genome skimming provides well resolved plastid and nuclear phylogenies, showing patterns of deep reticulate evolution in the tropical carnivorous plant genus Nepenthes (Caryophyllales)
TLDR
It is shown that genome skimming provides well resolved nuclear and plastid phylogenies that provide valuable insights into the complex evolutionary relationships of Nepenthes. Expand
Sequencing of whole plastid genomes and nuclear ribosomal DNA of Diospyros species (Ebenaceae) endemic to New Caledonia: many species, little divergence
TLDR
In plant groups in which multiple plastid markers are not sufficiently informative, an investigation at the level of the entire plASTid genome may also not be sufficient for detailed phylogenetic reconstruction. Expand
Metagenome Skimming of Insect Specimen Pools: Potential for Comparative Genomics
TLDR
The “metagenome skimming” approach is useful for capturing the genomic diversity of poorly studied, species-rich lineages and opens new prospects in environmental genomics. Expand
Molecular phylogenomics of the tribe Shoreeae (Dipterocarpaceae) using whole plastid genomes
TLDR
Phylogenomic analyses of the entire plastid genomes are useful for inferring phylogenetic relationships at lower taxonomic levels, but are not sufficient for detailed phylogenetic reconstructions of closely related species groups in Shoreeae. Expand
Phylogenetic community ecology of soil biodiversity using mitochondrial metagenomics
TLDR
A strong signature of vertical structuring in soil fauna is found that shows high local community differentiation between deep soil and superficial horizons at phylogenetic levels, pointing to layer‐mediated drivers determining species diversification, spatial structure and evolutionary assembly of soil communities. Expand
Phylogenomics using low‐depth whole genome sequencing: A case study with the olive tribe
TLDR
The results show that genome‐wide phylogenetic trees can be inferred from low‐depth sequence data sets for eukaryote groups with complex genomes, and histories of reticulate evolution, which opens new avenues for large‐scale phylogenomics and biogeographical analyses covering both the extant and the historical diversity stored in museum collections.

Rapid recovery of nuclear and mitochondrial genes by genome skimming from Northern Hemisphere freshwater crayfish
TLDR
The partial genome of crayfish species from Asian, North American and European genera is sequenced and it is reported that complete H3, 18S and 28S ribosomal RNA genes can also be consistently recovered from a diverse range of animal taxa, demonstrating the potential wide utility of genome skimming for nuclear markers.

Congruent Deep Relationships in the Grape Family (Vitaceae) Based on Sequences of Chloroplast Genomes and Mitochondrial Genes via Genome Skimming
TLDR
The topology based on either plastome data or mitochondrial genes is congruent with the one using hundreds of nuclear genes, indicating that the grape family did not exhibit significant reticulation at the deep level. Expand

Ultra-barcoding in cacao (Theobroma spp.; Malvaceae) using whole chloroplast genomes and nuclear ribosomal DNA.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that UBC is a viable, increasingly cost-effective approach for reliably distinguishing varieties and even individual genotypes of T. cacao and shows great promise for applications where very closely related or interbreeding taxa must be distinguished. Expand
Ribosomal ITS sequences and plant phylogenetic inference.
TLDR
Despite the near-universal usage of ITS sequence data in plant phylogenetic studies, its complex and unpredictable evolutionary behavior reduce its utility for phylogenetic analysis, and it is suggested that more robust insights are likely to emerge from the use of single-copy or low-copy nuclear genes.

To gain maximal access to the historical record contained within chloroplast genomes, multiplex sequencing-by-synthesis (MSBS) is adapted to simultaneously sequence multiple genomes using the Illumina Genome Analyzer. Expand
Navigating the tip of the genomic iceberg: Next-generation sequencing for plant systematics.
TLDR
The utility of genome skimming is demonstrated through phylogenetic analysis of the Sonoran Desert clade (SDC) of Asclepias (Apocynaceae) and the effect of divergence on reference-guided plastome assembly is addressed. Expand
Rapid and accurate pyrosequencing of angiosperm plastid genomes
TLDR
The high accuracy observed in the GS 20 plastid genome sequence was generated for a significant reduction in time and cost over traditional shotgun-based genome sequencing techniques, although with approximately half the coverage of previously reported GS 20 de novo genome sequence. Expand
Phylogenomics and taxonomy of Lecomtelleae (Poaceae), an isolated panicoid lineage from Madagascar.
TLDR
The study showed that NGS can be used to generate abundant phylogenetic information rapidly, opening new avenues for grass phylogenetics and showed that Lecomtella forms an isolated lineage, which justifies its treatment as a separate tribe: Lecmtelleae. Expand
Identifying the basal angiosperm node in chloroplast genome phylogenies: sampling one's way out of the Felsenstein zone.
TLDR
Whereas long sequences reduce variance in branch lengths and molecular dating estimates, the impact of improved taxon sampling on the rooting of the angiosperm phylogeny together with the results of parametric bootstrap analyses demonstrate how long-branch attraction might mislead genome-scale phylogenetic analyses.

Two exploratory parsimony analyses of DNA sequences from 475 and 499 species of seed plants, respectively, representing all major taxonomic groups indicate that rbcL sequence variation contains historical evidence appropriate for phylogenetic analysis at this taxonomic level of sampling. Expand

The approach provides a simple method for construction of whole chloroplast genomes from shotgun sequencing of whole genomic DNA using short-read data and no available closely related reference genome and therefore a useful approach for landscape level studies of evolutionary ecology. Expand
