Weekly reading: Next-generation sequencing platforms
…and now onto something completely different; or maybe not? We have completed the Spring 2014 circle of papers on characters, coding, homology, and philosophical implications. Here is the list again for review:
- Pimentel & Riggins. 1987. Nature of cladistic data.
- Strong & Lipscomb. 1999. Coding inapplicables.
- Rieppel. 2007. Performance of morphological characters.
- Brady. 1985. Independence of systematics.
- Putnam. 1974. Corroboration of theories.
- “Cladistics by hand”.
- Introducing DELTA.
- Character types and coding methods.
- Missing values, inapplicables, polymorphisms.
- Wheeler. 2006. Dynamic homology and likelihood.
- Ramírez. 2007. Dynamic homology and morphology.
- Japyassú & Machado. 2010. Dynamic homology without parsimony.
- Ramírez & Michalik. 2014. Structural complexity in ancestral ontologies.
Also recall this post on “worthwhile reads”.
For the summer session, we will pivot to Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS). Starting with a recent, technical review of NGS methods.
