The Role of Homology and Orthology in the Phylogenomic Analysis of Metazoan Gene Content
Resolving the relationships of animals (Metazoa) is crucial to our understanding of the origin of key traits such as muscles, guts, and nerves. However, a broadly accepted metazoan consensus phylogeny has yet to emerge. In part, this is because the genomes of deeply diverging and fast-evolving lineages may undergo significant gene turnover, reducing the number of orthologs shared with related phyla. This can limit the usefulness of traditional phylogenetic methods that rely on alignments of...[Show more]
