[…] from which the final tree is selected. the only difference between the two techniques is how the dataset is divided into subsets, with one technique using the dataset decomposition technique from dactal [] and the other using a modification of the dataset decomposition technique from rec-i-dcm3 []., we evaluate these two techniques on a collection of simulated and biological datasets, […]

[…] on msas, it avoids the bias created in msas, and provides conservative reliability estimates. phylogenetic approaches that link sequence alignment to phylogenetic reconstruction, such as saté [] and dactal [], may be able to solve some of the msa associated problems; however, as pointed out in the manuscript, approaches that are based on pairwise distances between sequences [,,] calculated […]
