Phylogenetic hypotheses generated from seven Drosophila mitochondrial genomes support a well-corroborated genealogy with a single evolutionary history. These mitochondrial data form a model system for investigating the efficiency of genes and accuracy of different tree-building methods in recovering a well-supported genealogy. We consider 15 genes (13 protein-coding and 2 rRNAs) and 83 tree-building methods (27 distance, 4 parsimony, 50 maximum likelihood, and 2 Bayesian). Among the 15 genes… CONTINUE READING
