[…] axon was effective in reducing the heterogeneity of lineage evolutionary rates.Here, we present one such criterion that was employed in a sequence data exploration algorithm that we developed called “Locus Specific Sequence Subsampling” (LS³), which aims to reduce LBA artifacts in phylogenetic inferences. This algorithm extends and refines the approach proposed by and automatically identifies, fo […]
