Robust Phylogenetic Tree Selection Based on Assessment of Model Building Errors

Abstract

The maximum likelihood method is widely used on phylogenetic inference. Sometimes the likelihood ratio tests reject all the possible tree models, because the purpose of the LR test is to select the best model while all the tree models are merely approximations of the reality. We propose a robust model fitting approach based on the assessment of model… (More)
