ddRAD-seq phylogenetics manuscript submitted!

February 9, 2015

This manuscript describes phylogenetic analyses of two avian genera (Lagonosticta finches and Vidua parasitic finches) using thousands of loci derived from ddRAD-seq. We conducted these analyses using a variety of concatenated data sets (i.e., sequence, indel, and presence-absence characters), and also using numerous species tree methods based on gene trees and single nucleotide polymorphisms.
