Assistant Researcher Brant Faircloth Interviewed in Science
A News & Analysis article in Science discusses how sequence capture of ultraconserved elements is changing the landscape of phylogenetics.
Faircloth and his collaborators, including Professor Patricia Gowaty, Associate Professor Michael Alfaro, PhD candidate Laurie Sorenson, and John McCormack (EEB PhD, 2007), pioneered the approach and have published several manuscripts using the technique to address a number of outstanding questions in evolutionary biology, including: the phylogenetic placement of turtles, the relationships among mammal lineages, the evolution of ray-finned fish lineages, the phylogeny of Neoaves (most birds), and the phylogeographic history of Neotropical rainforest bird species.
