Weighted Statistical Binning citations


Multilocus inference of species trees and DNA barcoding

PMCID: 4971187
PMID: 27481787
DOI: 10.1098/rstb.2015.0335

[…] oncatenation and supertree methods that try to improve the noise/signal ratio for each supergene without assuming that gene and species trees are topologically equivalent. The latest of these methods—weighted statistical binning []—has shown interesting improvements on the accuracy of different species tree reconstruction methods.Full probabilistic species tree reconstruction methods stand out as […]


The Interrelationships of Placental Mammals and the Limits of Phylogenetic Inference

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 4779606
PMID: 26733575
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evv261

[…] further tested the robustness of our phylogeny through the use of ASTRAL-2 (), a coalescent-based species tree estimation method that is robust to the presence of ILS (). We also explored the use of weighted statistical binning (; ), a technique designed to improve species tree estimation when gene trees have poor resolution. Thus, we used ASTRAL with and without weighted statistical binning, app […]
