Abstract Recent phylogenomic analyses have suggested tunicates instead of
cephalochordates as the closest living relatives of vertebrates. In direct contradiction with the
long accepted view of Euchordates, this new phylogenetic hypothesis for chordate evolution
has been the object of some skepticism. We assembled an expanded phylogenomic dataset
focused on deuterostomes. Maximum-likelihood using standard models and Bayesian
phylogenetic analyses using the CAT site-heterogeneous mixture model of amino-acid
