Paper on diatom phylotranscriptomics is now online

Our paper that takes a first look at the ability of transcriptome data to resolve diatom relationships is now available at the SMBE website. The paper is the product of a collaborative NSF grant with Norm Wickett, who is also a co-author on the paper. Matt Parks led the project. Take-home: most relationships can be recovered even in the face of widespread conflict among gene trees. A few relationships may continue to be difficult to resolve. Very nice work, Matt!
