Data from: Evolutionary origin and early biogeography of otophysan fishes (Ostariophysi: Teleostei)

Wei-Jen Chen, Sébastien Lavoué & Richard L. Mayden
Biogeography of the mega-diverse, freshwater and globally-distributed Otophysi has received considerable attention. The attraction largely stems from assumptions as its ancient origin, and by being almost exclusively freshwater, their suitability as to explanations of trans-oceanic distributions. Despite multiple hypotheses explaining present-day distributions, problems remain, precluding more parsimonious explanations. Underlying previous hypotheses involve alternative phylogenies for Otophysi, uncertainties as to temporal diversification and assumptions integral to various explanations. We reexamine the origin and early diversification of...

Data from: Vitis phylogenomics: hybridization intensities from a SNP array outperform genotype calls

Allison J. Miller, Naim Matasci, Heidi Schwaninger, Mallikarjuna K. Aradhya, Bernard Prins, Gan-Yuan Zhong, Charles Simon, Edward S. Buckler & Sean Myles
Understanding relationships among species is a fundamental goal of evolutionary biology. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) identified through next generation sequencing and related technologies enable phylogeny reconstruction by providing unprecedented numbers of characters for analysis. One approach to SNP-based phylogeny reconstruction is to identify SNPs in a subset of individuals, and then to compile SNPs on an array that can be used to genotype additional samples at hundreds or thousands of sites simultaneously. Although powerful and...
