Abstract
The use of genomic data and the rise of phylogenomics have radically changed our view of the eukaryotic tree of life at
a high taxonomic level by identifying 4­6 ``supergroups.'' Yet, our understanding of the evolution of key innovations within
each of these supergroups is limited because of poor species sampling relative to the massive diversity encompassed by
each supergroup. Here we apply a multigene approach that incorporates a wide taxonomic diversity to infer the time line
