In this Editor’s Choice article from the Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution journal, researchers provide the first genome-scale analysis of turtle phylogeny using sequence data collected from thousands of ultraconserved elements. Through maximum likelihood, Bayesian, and species tree methods, they produced a single resolved phylogeny. BluePippin was used to prepare the libraries for PCR amplification.
