The character compatibility approach, which removes all homoplasic characters and involves finding the largest clique of compatible characters in a dataset, in principle, provides a powerful means for obtaining correct topology in difficult to resolve cases. However, the usefulness of this approach to generalized molecular sequence data for phylogeny determination has not been studied in the past. We have used this approach to determine the topology of 23 proteobacterial species (6 each of… CONTINUE READING
