New GBE paper on pseudoreferences!

We have a new paper in the March issue of GBE on developing pseudoreference approaches to facilitate comparative genomic studies between species with and without established references genomes. The work was led by former lab postdoc Brice Sarver (now at Amby Genetics) and includes both the development of flexible analytical pipelines to generate pseudoreferences (available on Github as pseudo-it), and the generation of new whole exome sequence data from 11 species of mice (Mus) which we used to examine the evolutionary history of this group.

The methods can be implemented through the pseudo-it package available here
