Linking Branch Lengths across Sets of Loci Provides the Highest Statistical Support for Phylogenetic Inference

Duchêne, David A.; Tong, K. Jun; Foster, Charles S. P.; Duchene, Sebastian; Lanfear, Robert; Ho, Simon


Evolution leaves heterogeneous patterns of nucleotide variation across the genome, with different loci subject to varying degrees of mutation, selection, and drift. In phylogenetics, the potential impacts of partitioning sequence data for the assignment of substitution models are well appreciated. In contrast, the treatment of branch lengths has received far less attention. In this study, we examined the effects of linking and unlinking branch-length parameters across loci or subsets of loci....[Show more]
