Nonstationary evolution and compositional heterogeneity in beetle mitochondrial phylogenomics.

Abstract

Many published phylogenies are based on methods that assume equal nucleotide composition among taxa. Studies have shown, however, that this assumption is often not accurate, particularly in divergent lineages. Nonstationary sequence evolution, when taxa in different lineages evolve in different ways, can lead to unequal nucleotide composition. This can… (More)
