Abstract

Phylogenomics represent the gold standard for estimating evolutionary relationships and divergence times among organisms. In this project, we will investigate one of the controversial points among squamate reptiles, which is the family Lacertidae. By employing a large number of taxa (>200) and loci (>6000) we aim at reconstructing a robust phylogeny and time-tree of lacertids to resolve their controversial relationships.
