Target capture has emerged as an important tool for phylogenetics and population genetics in non-model taxa. Whereas developing taxon-specific capture probes requires sustained efforts, available universal kits may have a lower power to reconstruct relationships at shallow phylogenetic scales and within rapidly radiating clades. We present here a newly-developed target capture set for Bromeliaceae, a large and ecologically-diverse plant family with highly variable diversification rates. The set… 

A target Capture Probe Set Useful for Deep- and Shallow-Level Phylogenetic Studies in Cactaceae

The importance of using coalescent-based species tree approaches on the Cactaceae591 dataset to infer accurate phylogenetic trees in the presence of extensive incomplete lineage sorting in this family is highlighted.

A target capture approach for phylogenomic analyses at multiple evolutionary timescales in rosewoods (Dalbergia spp.) and the legume family (Fabaceae)

A set of target capture probes for phylogenomic studies of the highly diverse, pantropically distributed and economically significant rosewoods (Dalbergia spp.), explored the performance of an overlapping probe set for target capture across the legume family (Fabaceae), and built a general-purpose bioinformatics pipeline.

New plastome structural rearrangements discovered in core Tillandsioideae (Bromeliaceae) support recently adopted taxonomy

Several plastid markers that have been consistently used to address phylogenetic relationships within Tillandsioideae were highly informative for the retrieved plastome phylogeny and further loci are here identified as promising additional markers for future studies.

Tackling Rapid Radiations With Targeted Sequencing

Targeted sequencing provides new insights into the evolution of morphology in the C4 Cyperus clade, demonstrating for example that the former segregate genus Alinula is polyphyletic despite its seeming morphological integrity.

Using target sequence capture to improve the phylogenetic resolution of a rapid radiation in New Zealand Veronica.

Phylogenomic target capture data sets both increase phylogenetic signal and deliver new insights into the complex evolutionary history of rapid radiations as compared with traditional markers.

Comparison of taxon‐specific versus general locus sets for targeted sequence capture in plant phylogenomics

The taxon‐specific data set produced the best‐supported tree, but all data sets showed improved resolution over previous non‐sequence capture data sets.

A dedicated target capture approach reveals variable genetic markers across micro‐ and macro‐evolutionary time scales in palms

The bait set was effective for species belonging to all three palm sub‐families tested, with high mapping rates, specificity and efficiency, and the number of high‐quality single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) detected at both the sub‐family and population levels facilitates efficient analyses of genomic diversity across micro‐ and macro‐evolutionary time scales.

Targeted NGS for species level phylogenomics: “made to measure” or “one size fits all”?

It is concluded that rather than searching for “one size fits all” universal markers, the tools necessary for developing “made to measure” ones should be improved and made more accessible.

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.

Phylogenomics Reveals Three Sources of Adaptive Variation during a Rapid Radiation

It is indicated that multiple genetic sources can promote rapid diversification and speciation in response to new ecological opportunity, in agreement with the emerging phylogenomic understanding of the complexity of both ancient and recent species radiations.

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.
