"The latest of these, “A phylogeny of birds based on over 1,500 loci collected by target enrichment and high-throughput sequencing” by John E. McCormack et al., isn’t even officially published yet, but its authors made it available this month on a manuscript server called arXiv (a practice which, by the way, is still regarded with some uncertainty but appears to be gaining popularity)."

I was not familiar with arXiv but this manuscript must be accepted for publication I reckon. Systematic Biology or something?

From the perspective in Science: "At BGI, the genomes of about 200 more birds are done and waiting to be analyzed, with thousands more planned." Pretty cool.

its actually 10000 birds genome project. in incoming years they will sequence whole genome of all living species of birds and put it available to all public and scientist all around globe. by the way regards from serbia, I was on your presentation few years ago :)
