The position of Xenacoelomorpha in the tree of life remains a major unresolved question in the study of deep animal relationships. [...] Key Result Here we show robust phylogenomic support for Xenacoelomorpha as the sister taxon of Nephrozoa. Our phylogenetic analyses, based on 11 novel xenacoelomorph transcriptomes and using different models of evolution under maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference analyses, strongly corroborate this result.Expand
