Hybrid enrichment is an increasingly popular approach for obtaining hundreds of loci for phylogenetic analysis across many taxa quickly and cheaply. The genes targeted for sequencing are typically single-copy loci, which facilitate a more straightforward sequence assembly and homology assignment process. However, single copy loci are relatively uncommon elements of most genomes, and as such may provide a biased evolutionary history. Furthermore, this approach limits the inclusion of most genes… CONTINUE READING
