Selecting optimal partitioning schemes for phylogenomic datasets

Lanfear, Robert; Calcott, Brett; Kainer, David; Mayer, Christoph; Stamatakis, Alexandros


BACKGROUND Partitioning involves estimating independent models of molecular evolution for different subsets of sites in a sequence alignment, and has been shown to improve phylogenetic inference. Current methods for estimating best-fit partitioning schemes, however, are only computationally feasible with datasets of fewer than 100 loci. This is a problem because datasets with thousands of loci are increasingly common in phylogenetics. METHODS We develop two novel methods for estimating best-fit...[Show more]
