PartitionFinder: Combined Selection of Partitioning Schemes and Substitution Models for Phylogenetic Analyses

Lanfear, Robert; Calcott, Brett; Ho, Simon; Guindon, Stephane


In phylogenetic analyses of molecular sequence data, partitioning involves estimating independent models of molecular evolution for different sets of sites in a sequence alignment. Choosing an appropriate partitioning scheme is an important step in most analyses because it can affect the accuracy of phylogenetic reconstruction. Despite this, partitioning schemes are often chosen without explicit statistical justification. Here, we describe two new objective methods for the combined selection of...[Show more]
