To estimate approximate divergence times of species or species groups with molecular data, we have developed a method of constructing a linearized tree under the assumption of a molecular clock. We present two tests of the molecular clock for a given topology: two-cluster test and branch-length test. The two-cluster test examines the hypothesis of the molecular clock for the two lineages created by an interior node of the tree, whereas the branch-length test examines the deviation of the branch… CONTINUE READING
