Scincid lizard phylogeny resolved at shallow and deep levels

Anchored Phylogenomics provided resolution at both phylogeographic and phylogenetic levels in skinks. In a comparison to transcriptome data, Anchored Phylogenomic data sets were found to perform as well or better and to be more cost effective, thus allowing greater taxon sampling. This study collected data using the original Vertebrate v1 capture probe design. We have since developed a much improved amniote-specific design.
