Nature ( the world’s leading multidisciplinary science journal) published an article in which they announced a substantial step towards the dense representation of avian phylogenetic and molecular diversity, by analysing 363 genomes from 92.4% of bird families—including 267 newly sequenced genomes produced for phase II of the Bird 10,000 Genomes (B10K) Project . This research also included the results of our Agapornis Genome Study .
This genomic resource will offer new perspectives on evolutionary processes in cross-species comparative analyses and assist in efforts to conserve species. In other words, this research should provide more insight into the evolution and development of the various bird species.
