Tod Reeder's group at San Diego State University and a Swiss colleague suggested a revised taxonomy for lizards called skinks. By testing novel methods for partitioning genetic data into discrete segments used in Bayesian analysis, they found, among other results, that one skink genus, Eumeces, was actually composed of lizards belonging to several genera.
"No one had ever put together a comprehensive DNA phylogeny of the group," says Matt Brandley, now at the University of California, Berkeley, and the first author of the paper. "Anyone who builds phylogenies, whether you're studying bacteria or apes, can benefit from using that technique."
