Invited research seminar given to MSc students at University College Dublin on 24th October 2013.
I introduce the discipline of phylogenomics - comparative phylogenetic analyses of DNA sequences across genomes - and some of the applications and recent breakthroughs in the field.
As an in-depth case study I explain the methods and significance of our 2013 Nature paper on adaptive genotypic molecular convergence in echolocating mammals.
I then highlight some of the avenues of study on the frontiers of current research.
