Bayesian hypothesis testing of four-taxon topologies using molecular sequence data.

Abstract

The reconstruction of phylogenetic trees from molecular sequences presents unusual problems for statistical inference. For example, three possible alternatives must be considered for four taxa when inferring the correct unrooted tree (referred to as a topology). In our view, classical hypothesis testing is poorly suited to this triangular set of alternative… (More)
