During my PhD (2004--2008), I worked on the molecular phylogeny of ancanthomorphs. I extended the dataset by obtaining sequences for various species spanning a large diversity within the group. I also added a new nuclear marker to the dataset: RNF213. To make better use of the data, I worked on a way to summarize the results obtained from the analyzes of independent datasets. This resulted in a repetition index indicating to what extent a given clade can be considered reliable. For more details, you can find my PhD dissertation here: http://tel.archives-ouvertes.fr/tel-00331825/fr/. If you are interested in the phylogenetic conclusions, you should go directly to page 182 of the dissertation or page 125 of the PhD defense presentation. It is in French, but there are trees to look at, that are, in my opinion, more accurate than those published in the RNF213 paper in Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution (Li et al., 2009).
