Keywords:

  • parametric phylogenetics - two other approaches, maximum likelihood (ML), and Bayesian analyses;
  • ML analyses in phylogenetics - likelihood of observing data on a particular tree topology, given a model of evolution;
  • Likelihood, “what is the probability of the data” given the model - leading to Bayesian analysis, “what is the probability of the model” given the data
