The problem of testing for congruence between phylogenetic data has long been debated among phylogeneticists, but reaches a critical point with the availability of large amount of biological sequences. Notably in prokaryotes, where the amount of lateral transfers is believed to be important, the inference of phylogenies using multiple genes requires testing for incongruence before concatenating the genes. On another scale, incongruence tests can be used to detect recombination points within… CONTINUE READING
