RWTY (R We There Yet): An R Package for Examining Convergence of Bayesian Phylogenetic Analyses.

Bayesian inference using Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) has become one of the primary methods used to infer phylogenies from sequence data. Assessing convergence is a crucial component of these

Confidence Sets for Phylogenetic Trees

This manuscript unify recent computational and probabilistic advances to construct tree–valued confidence sets, identifying the best supported most recent ancestor of the Zika virus, and formally testing the hypothesis that a Floridian dentist with AIDS infected two of his patients with HIV.

Estimating the Effective Sample Size of Tree Topologies from Bayesian Phylogenetic Analyses

These methods are combined with two new diagnostic plots for assessing posterior samples of tree topologies, and provide new ways to assess the mixing and convergence of phylogenetic treetopologies in Bayesian MCMC analyses.

Phylogenetic MCMC Algorithms Are Misleading on Mixtures of Trees

It is proved that the Markov chains take an exponentially long number of iterations to converge to the posterior distribution, which means that in cases of data containing potentially conflicting phylogenetic signals, phylogenetic reconstruction should be performed separately on each signal.

Guided tree topology proposals for Bayesian phylogenetic inference.

This work investigates the performance of common MCMC proposal distributions in terms of median and variance of run time to convergence on 11 data sets, and introduces two new Metropolized Gibbs Samplers for moving through "tree space".

A biologist’s guide to Bayesian phylogenetic analysis

The major features of Bayesian phylogenetic inference are summarized and Bayesian computation using Markov chain Monte Carlo sampling, the diagnosis of an MCMC run, and ways of summarizing the MCMC sample are discussed.

Bayesian phylogenetic and phylodynamic data integration using BEAST 1.10

The BEAST software package unifies molecular phylogenetic reconstruction with complex discrete and continuous trait evolution, divergence-time dating, and coalescent demographic models in an efficient statistical inference engine using Markov chain Monte Carlo integration.

Using Parsimony-Guided Tree Proposals to Accelerate Convergence in Bayesian Phylogenetic Inference

This work introduces a new class of moves, which propose trees based on their parsimony scores, and shows that tree moves based on quick and dirty estimates of the posterior probability can significantly outperform standard moves.

Evolutionary trees from DNA sequences: A maximum likelihood approach

  • J. Felsenstein

A computationally feasible method for finding such maximum likelihood estimates is developed, and a computer program is available that allows the testing of hypotheses about the constancy of evolutionary rates by likelihood ratio tests.

Properties of Markov Chain Monte Carlo Performance across Many Empirical Alignments

An overview of commonly applied phylogenetic MCMC diagnostics is presented and an assessment of patterns of these diagnostics across more than 18,000 empirical analyses show that the usage of models that include both Γ-distributed among-site rate variation and a proportion of invariable sites is not broadly problematic for MCMC convergence but is also unnecessary.
