Maximum-likelihood Estimation of Population Divergence times and Population Phylogeny in Models without Mutation.

Abstract

In this paper we present a method for estimating population divergence times by maximum likelihood in models without mutation. The maximum-likelihood estimator is compared to a commonly applied estimator based on Wright's FST statistic. Simulations suggest that the maximum-likelihood estimator is less biased and has a lower variance than the FST -based… (More)
