phytime description

PhyTime is a program that estimates node ages and substitution rates using a fast Bayesian approach. It relies on a Gibbs sampler which outperforms the standard Metropolis-Hastings algorithm implemented in most phylogenetic softwares that aim at estimating node ages

Parent program: phyml

PhyML is a software that estimates maximum likelihood phylogenies from alignments of nucleotide or amino acid sequences. The main strength of PhyML lies in the large number of substitution models coupled to various options to search the space of phylogenetic tree topologies, going from very fast and efficient methods to slower but generally more accurate approaches. PhyML was designed to process moderate to large data sets. In theory, alignments with up to 4,000 sequences 2,000,000 character-long can be processed
