DivBayes and SubT: exploring species diversification using Bayesian statistics.
2011 (English)In: Bioinformatics, ISSN 1367-4803, E-ISSN 1367-4811, Vol. 27, no 17, 2439-40 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
SUMMARY: DivBayes is a program to estimate diversification rates from species richness and ages of a set of clades. SubT estimates diversification rates from node heights within a clade. Both programs implement Bayesian statistics and provide the ability to account for uncertainty in the ages of taxa in the underlying data, an improvement over more commonly used maximum likelihood methods.
AVAILABILITY: DivBayes and SubT are released as C++ source code under the GNU GPL v. 3 software license in Supplementary information 1 and 2, respectively, and at http://web.utk.edu/~kryberg/. They have been successfully compiled on various Linux, MacOS X and Windows systems.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.
