Scientists acknowledge lateral gene transfer as a phenomenon, and then we draw our trees anyway. So I think the next paradigm shift will be figuring out how to capture the combination of lateral and vertical events on depictions of the tree of life.

I think weve made surprisingly little progress in understanding diversification events at the origin of eukaryotes. There is currently significant debate as to whether eukaryotes are just another lineage of archaea or whether archaea and eukaryotes constitute distinct groups.
