[…] substitution models and their parameter values using the r-package phangorn () on the empirical data sets and applied these when simulating sequences on the simulated tree using the r-package phylosim () simulated alignments that were invariable were removed from the data set. basic properties of the simulated tree set of alignments are similar to the actual data (). replication […]

[…] assessment of their respective performances and thus help the biologist in choosing objectively proper tools []., standard tools to simulate sequence evolution along trees such as indelible [] or phylosim [] can be adapted to simulate hgt. hgt events cause the relevant gene trees to conflict with the species tree. such hgt events can be simulated through subtree pruning and regrafting […]
