A Bayesian model test package for BEAST2. bModelTest can be used in any analysis where trees are estimated based on nucleotide sequences, such as multi-species coalescent analysis, various forms of phylogeographical analyses, sampled ancestor analysis, demographic reconstruction using coalescent, birth death skyline analysis, et cetera. The graphical use interface (GUI) support provided through BEAUti makes it easy to set up an analysis with the bModelTest site model. bModelTest allows estimation of the site model using a full Bayesian approach, without the need to rely on non-Bayesian tools for selecting the site model.
