Incongruence

MPE: Deep phylogenetic incongruence in the angiosperm clade Rosidae

Analysis of large data sets can help resolve difficult nodes in the tree of life and also reveal complex evolutionary histories. The placement of the **Celastrales–Oxalidales–Malpighiales (COM) clade** within _Rosidae_ remains one of the most …

Exploring deep phylogenetic incongruence of the COM clade in Rosidae: Phylogenomics approach [PhD dissertation]

Analysis of large data sets can help resolve difficult nodes in the tree of life and also concomitantly reveal complex evolutionary histories, including instances of lateral gene transfer, hybridization, or incomplete lineage sorting. The placement …

Genome: Identification of nuclear low-copy genes and their phylogenetic utility in rosids

By far, the interordinal relationships in rosids remain poorly resolved. Previous studies based on chloroplast, mitochondrial, and nuclear DNA has produced conflicting phylogenetic resolutions that has become a widely concerned problem in recent …

Tree of Life and Its Applications

The term “Tree of Life” was first used by Charles Darwin in 1859 as a metaphor for describing phylogenetic relationships among organisms. Over the past three decades, the recognized tree of life has im- proved considerably in overall size and …
