Comparative genomics of the tardigrades Hypsibius dujardini and Ramazzottius varieornatus

PLoS Biol
PMCID: 5531438
PMID: 28749982
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pbio.2002266

[…] i and R. varieornatus using OrthoFinder 1.1.2 [] at different inflation values (). Proteins from all proteomes were functionally annotated using InterProScan []. OrthoFinder output was analyzed using KinFin [] under 2 competing phylogenetic hypotheses: either (1) “Panarthropoda,” where Tardigrada and Arthropoda share a more recent common ancestor distinct from Nematoda, or (2) Tardigrada and Nemat […]
