Threadfins (Teleostei: Polynemidae) are a group of fishes named for their elongated and threadlike pectoral-fin rays. These fishes are commonly found in the world's tropical and subtropical waters, and are an economically important group for people living in these regions, with more than 100,000 t harvested in recent years. However, we do not have a detailed understanding of polynemid evolutionary history such that these fishes can be monitored, managed and conserved as an important tropical… 



An Insight into the Threadfin (Perciformes: Polynemidae) Diversity of Indian Waters using Mitochondrial COI Signatures

The utility of DNA barcodes in species identification in polynemids globally is determined as determined by the analysis of mitochondrial COI gene for validating species identification and phylogeny of threadfins occurring in Indian waters.

Genome of the four-finger threadfin Eleutheronema tetradactylum (Perciforms: Polynemidae)

The four-finger threadfin E. tetradactylum genome presented here represents the first available genome sequence for the ecologically, biologically, and commercially important clade of threadfin fish, and provides a useful genomic resource for future research into the interesting biology and evolution of this valuable group of food fish.

Phylogenomic analysis of carangimorph fishes reveals flatfish asymmetry arose in a blink of the evolutionary eye

A phylogeny based on UCE loci that unequivocally supports flatfish monophyly and a single origin of asymmetry points to phenotypic divergence early within carangimorph history that broadly matches with the predictions of adaptive models of lineage diversification.

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.

This study evaluates the phylogeny of ray‐finned fishes (Actinopterygii) combining most available information (44 markers from nuclear and mitochondrial DNA and 274 morphological characters) to obtain synapomorphies and diagnoses for most clades.

The complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Eleutheronema tetradactylum (Mugiliformes: Polynemidae) and phylogenetic studies of Mugiliformes

The complete mitogenome sequence of Eleutheronema tetradactylum was determined and a Maximum Likelihood (ML) tree was constructed based on concatenated nucleotide sequences of 12 mitochondrial protein-coding genes to provide useful molecular data for phylogenetic studies of Polynemidae and Perciformes.

The Phylogeny of Carangiform Fishes: Morphological and Genomic Investigations of a New Fish Clade

Combined analyses of new and previously identified discrete morphological characters and new andPreviously published genome-scale data are performed to characterize the evolutionary history and anatomical variation within this clade of fishes.

Systematics of Damselfishes

The phylogenetic relationships of the damselfishes are examined herein using sequence data from five mitochondrial and three nuclear loci to reconstruct the phylogeny of pomacentrids via maximum likelihood, corroborating some conclusions drawn by recent studies but contradicting others.
