Topological variation in single-gene phylogenetic trees

Genome Biol. 2007;8(6):216. doi: 10.1186/gb-2007-8-6-216.


A recent large-scale phylogenomic study has shown the great degree of topological variation that can be found among eukaryotic phylogenetic trees constructed from single genes, highlighting the problems that can be associated with gene sampling in phylogenetic studies.
