Improved characterisation of among-lineage rate variation in cetacean mitogenomes using codon-partitioned relaxed clocks

Ho, Simon; Lanfear, Robert

Description

Background and aims. There is extensive variation in substitution rates among metazoan mitochondrial genomes, including differences among lineages and among sites. Differences in substitution rates among lineages are routinely taken into account in molecular phylogenetic and dating analyses. However, this is rarely the case for differences in the lineage-specific patterns of rate variation among sites.Materials and methods. We analysed an alignment of 32 cetacean mitogenomes using a partitioned...[Show more]
