Simulating and detecting autocorrelation of molecular evolutionary rates among lineages

Ho, Simon; Duchene, Sebastian; Duchene, David

Description

Evolutionary timescales can be estimated from genetic data using phylogenetic methods based on the molecular clock. To account for molecular rate variation among lineages, a number of relaxed-clock models have been developed. Some of these models assume that rates vary among lineages in an autocorrelated manner, so that closely related species share similar rates. In contrast, uncorrelated relaxed clocks allow all of the branch-specific rates to be drawn from a single distribution, without...[Show more]
