From: The rainbow trout genome provides novel insights into evolution after whole-genome duplication in vertebrates

Figure 1

This tree is based on the time-calibrated phylogeny information from Near et al.4 except for the additional branches in red. The red stars show the position of the teleost-specific (Ts3R) and the salmonid-specific (Ss4R) whole-genome duplications. Groups of species in which a genome sequence is available are shown in red bold type, with one example in each group. Origin of fish pictures: Manfred Schartl and Christoph Winkler (medaka, zebrafish and Tetraodon), John F. Scarola (rainbow trout), Bernd Ueberschaer (Nile tilapia) and Konrad Schmidt (three-spined stickleback).
