[…] for codon-partitioned substitution models to be used. the final dataset consisted of 174 genomes from human infections and 100 genomes from camel infections ()., for our primary analysis, the multitypetree module () of beast v2.4.3 () was used to specify a structured coalescent model with two demes – humans and camels. at time of writing structured population models are available in beast […]

[…] of an epidemic. here, we show on one fixed tree how the exact structured coalescent compares in the inference of the root state to its approximations. we additionally inferred the root state using multitypetree (), which uses mcmc to sample lineage states and does not rely on approximations, to obtain a reference root state probability (). we inferred the probability of the root […]
