New algorithms and methods to estimate maximum-likelihood phylogenies: assessing the performance of PhyML 3.0.
PhyML is a phylogeny software based on the maximum-likelihood principle. Early PhyML versions used a fast algorithm performing nearest neighbor interchanges to improve a reasonable starting treeExpand

Phylogeny.fr: robust phylogenetic analysis for the non-specialist
Phylogenetic analyses are central to many research areas in biology and typically involve the identification of homologous sequences, their multiple alignment, phylogenetic reconstruction and the graphical representation of the inferred tree. Expand

SMS: Smart Model Selection in PhyML
Abstract Model selection using likelihood-based criteria (e.g., AIC) is one of the first steps in phylogenetic analysis. One must select both a substitution matrix and a model for rates across sites.Expand

Characterization of 43 Non-Protein-Coding mRNA Genes in Arabidopsis, Including the MIR162a-Derived Transcripts1[W]
Messenger RNAs that do not contain a long open reading frame (ORF) or non-protein-coding RNAs (npcRNAs) are an emerging novel class of transcripts. Their functions may involve the RNA molecule itselfExpand

PhySIC_IST: cleaning source trees to infer more informative supertrees
The paper introduces and tests two new methodologies, PhySIC_IST and STC, that demonstrate the interest in inferring non-plenary supertrees as well as preprocessing the source trees. Expand
