The group also includes numerous invasive species that cause considerable Urochordata economic damage and some species of tunicates are edible. Despite their diversity and importance, relationships Thaliacea among major lineages of Tunicata are not completely resolved. Here, we supplemented public data with tran- Phylogenomic scriptomes from seven species spanning the diversity of Tunicata and conducted phylogenomic analyses on
