Premise of the study: New sequencing technologies enable the possibility of generating large-scale molecular datasets for constructing the plant tree of life. We describe a new probe set for target enrichment sequencing to generate nuclear sequence data to build phylogenetic trees with any flagellate plants, comprising hornworts, liverworts, mosses, lycophytes, ferns, and gymnosperms. Methods and Results: We leveraged existing transcriptome and genome sequence data to design a set of 56,989 probes for target enrichment sequencing of 451 nuclear exons and non-coding flanking regions across flagellate plant lineages. We describe the performance of target enrichment using the probe set across flagellate plants and demonstrate the potential of the data to resolve relationships among both ancient and closely related taxa. Conclusions: A target enrichment approach using the new probe set provides a relatively low-cost solution to obtain large-scale nuclear sequence data for inferring phylogenetic relationships across flagellate plants. ### Competing Interest Statement The authors have declared no competing interest.
