PhyloBayes 3: a Bayesian software package for phylogenetic reconstruction and molecular dating
We propose a software package, PhyloBayes 3, which can be used for conducting Bayesian phylogenetic reconstruction and molecular dating analyses, using a large variety of amino acid replacement and nucleotide substitution models, including empirical mixtures or non-parametric models, as well as alternative clock relaxation processes.

A site- and time-heterogeneous model of amino acid replacement.
We combined the category (CAT) mixture model (Lartillot N, Philippe H. 2004) and the nonstationary break point (BP) model (Blanquart S, Lartillot N. 2006) into a new model, CAT-BP, accounting for… Expand
A Bayesian compound stochastic process for modeling nonstationary and nonhomogeneous sequence evolution.
Variations of nucleotidic composition affect phylogenetic inference conducted under stationary models of evolution. In particular, they may cause unrelated taxa sharing similar base composition to be… Expand

Due to the lack of macromolecular fossils, the enzymatic repertoire of extinct species has remained largely unknown to date. In an attempt to solve this problem, we have characterized a cyclase… Expand
ProCARs: Progressive Reconstruction of Ancestral Gene Orders
We present a new homology-based method that uses a progressive approach for both the detection and the assembling of ancestral contiguity features into CARs. Expand
