Among The Animals We Study

Collaborative Research: Assembling the Bivalve Tree of Life


Assembling a stable Animal Tree of Life has become an achievable goal since the recent addition of phylogenomics to the kit of systematists. With this aim in mind we have explored phylogenomic data, mostly based on novel EST (Expressed Sequence Tag) data but also based on available genomic information, of most animal phyla. At the same time we have also developed new strategies for coding morphological information from extant and extinct metazoans and combined them with the phylogenomic data.visitNSF logo
