From phylotranscriptomics to anchored phylogenomics.

Phylogenetic frameworks for species relationships and gene families are becoming increasingly essential for organization and analysis of the avalanche of sequence data that has come with development of massively parallel sequencing technologies. Phylogenetic analyses of approximated gene families are yielding improved understanding of species relationships and new insights into gene and genome evolution. The OneKP consortium has generated transcriptome data for over 1200 species distributed across the Viridiplantae, providing gene family circumscription and phylogenetic gene tree and species tree estimation. Transcriptomic phylogenetic analyses are perhaps less feasible for lineage-specific analyses, particularly from herbarium samples that may face issues of degradation over time. However, phylotranscriptomics, and in particular the data generated by OneKP, provides an invaluable resource for generating sequence capture baits for large portions of the land plant tree of life. Here I describe how the OneKP data are being used to develop sequence capture baits to enrich for targeted loci in both live and herbarium specimens.
