Molecular Evidence - continued (1)

For background to this post see the earlier post entitled "Molecular Evidence".

David Hone:

“In answer to your question though yes, in theory, birds could be the sister-taxon to pterosaurs and still be considered closer to dinosaurs than crocodiles.”
“So with the very loose results, yeah, it's possible that birds are closer to pterosaurs.”

This is in regards to the molecular studies done by Mary Schweitzer et al.
Here are links to those studies.
More detail if you have access:
