GigaScience Database. RIS BibTeX Text

Determining the evolutionary relationships of modern birds has been one of the biggest challenges in systematic biology. To address this challenge, we assembled or collected the genomes of 48 avian species spanning most orders of birds, including all Neoagnathae and two of the five Palaegnoathae orders, and used the genomes to construct various genome-scale avian phylogenetic trees and perform comparative genomics analyses.
Here we release the datasets associated with the phylogenomic analyses, which include genome scale alignments, gene tree files (including binned supergene trees), species tree files (including timetrees), and loci sequence files including nucleotide, amino acid, indels, and transposable elements. We hope that this resource will serve future efforts in phylogenomics, evolutionary biology, and trait analyses.
