Bayesian molecular dating: opening up the black box

Bromham, Lindell; Duchene, Sebastian; Hua, Xia; Ritchie, Andrew M.; Duchene, David; Ho, Simon


Molecular dating analyses allow evolutionary timescales to be estimated from genetic data, offering an unprecedented capacity for investigating the evolutionary past of all species. These methods require us to make assumptions about the relationship between genetic change and evolutionary time, often referred to as a ‘molecular clock’. Although initially regarded with scepticism, molecular dating has now been adopted in many areas of biology. This broad uptake has been due partly to the...[Show more]
