MOTIVATION A promising sliding-window method for the detection of interspecific recombination in DNA sequence alignments is based on the monitoring of changes in the posterior distribution of tree topologies with a probabilistic divergence measure. However, as the number of taxa in the alignment increases or the sliding-window size decreases, the posterior distribution becomes increasingly diffuse. This diffusion blurs the probabilistic divergence signal and adversely affects the detection… CONTINUE READING
