We describe a simple transformation that allows for the fast recovery of a tree from the probabilities such a tree induces on the colourations of its leaves under a simple Markov process (withâ€¦ (More)

Stochastic models of nucleotide substitution are playing an increasingly important role in phylogenetic reconstruction through such methods as maximum likelihood. Here, we examine the behaviour of aâ€¦ (More)

A "covarion" model for nucleotide substitution that allows sites to turn "on" and "off" with time was proposed in 1970 by Fitch and Markowitz. It has been argued recently that evidence supports suchâ€¦ (More)

Archaebacterial halophiles (Haloarchaea) are oxygen-respiring heterotrophs that derive from methanogens--strictly anaerobic, hydrogen-dependent autotrophs. Haloarchaeal genomes are known to haveâ€¦ (More)

Null models for generating binary phylogenetic trees are useful for testing evolutionary hypotheses and reconstructing phylogenies. We consider two such null models - the Yule and uniform models -â€¦ (More)

Given a phylogenetic tree with leaves labeled by a collection of species, and with weighted edges, the "phylogenetic diversity" of any subset of the species is the sum of the edge weights of theâ€¦ (More)

For the past two decades, there has been an ongoing debate within the plylogenetics community over whether model-based approaches for molecular systematics (such as maximum likelihood) should beâ€¦ (More)

Methods such as maximum parsimony (MP) are frequently criticized as being statistically unsound and not being based on any "model." On the other hand, advocates of MP claim that maximum likelihoodâ€¦ (More)

It is nearly 20 years since the landmark paper (Saitou and Nei 1987) in Molecular Biology and Evolution introducing Neighbor-Joining (NJ). The method has become the most widely used method forâ€¦ (More)

We analyze a maximum likelihood approach for combining phylogenetic trees into a larger "supertree." This is based on a simple exponential model of phylogenetic error, which ensures that MLâ€¦ (More)
