B10K Progress

In December 2014, the Avian Phylogenomics Project published a genomic phylogeny of 34 avian orders. The Bird 10,000 Genomes Project is now well underway on Phase 2: sequencing genomes from approximately 300 bird families and subfamilies. Progress towards the ultimate goal of sequencing every avian family, genus, and eventually, species, is tracked here. As of July 5, 2017, B10K is processing 2,500 samples, representing 2,400 species from 1,370 genera, 300 families, and 36 orders.
