Revisiting ferns

Hi all,

For next week, I thought we could take another look at ferns, but in a different context: rate heterogeneity unique to a specific lineage.  It's a fairly long paper, but should provide plenty of material to discuss.  Some of these ferns also look really cool, so I may opt to show a few pictures again.

Another possible paper

Here is another paper that might be of interest to the seminar, published last week in Science, using transcriptomes to infer the timing and relationships of all insect orders. Some of the methods, especially the approaches used to partition genes by domains, might be useful to the entire phylogenetics group. The supplementary methods has been downloaded 17,350 times in 4 days since being published.
