The past decade has seen the emergence of a new field of scientific inquiry at the intersection of phylogenetics and genomics: phylogenomics. This volume is a collection of prools and resources compiled by leading researchers in the field and describes many of the molecular methods and bioinformatics tools that have brought this field to fruition in recent years.
