A persistent, elongated filling defect within the distal ileum in a patient with chronic blood loss and symptoms of partial obstruction is most likely to be due to an inverted(More)

Oaks et al. present a simulation-based power analysis of msBayes and conclude that msBayes has low power to detect genuinely random divergence times across taxa, and suggest the cause is Lindley's paradox. Although the(More)
