Best methods for phylogenetics

Best methods for phylogenetics

29 March, 2012

When you were asked the question “What can and dating do nowadays”, which top 3 papers would you cite? Which studies impressed you most regarding number of taxa included, number and quality of calibration points/available fossil data base, quality of methods used for phylogenetic inference, number/length of genes (genomes) included, methods for dating used and so on….What is your personal gold standard today? Or in other words, which studies would you present in a class as today’s state of the art?

I would very much appreciate your suggestions.
