Uses maximum likelihood inference to simultaneously detect recombination in bacterial genomes and account for it in phylogenetic reconstruction. ClonalFrameML can analyse hundreds of genomes in a matter of hours. It implements the model underlying the popular Bayesian ClonalFrame approach in a computationally efficient manner, and we have demonstrated its ability to estimate recombination parameters and detect importation events in the context of understanding short-term transmission dynamics and long-term bacterial evolution.
