 The estimation of tree posterior probabilities using conditional clade probability distributionsBret Larget
Departments of Botany and Statistics, University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI 53706, USA
Syst Biol 62:50111. 2013..Furthermore, the method can be used to estimate the total probability of the set of sampled trees which provides a measure of the thoroughness of a posterior sample...  A Bayesian approach to the estimation of ancestral genome arrangementsBret Larget
Department of Botany, University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA

Bayesian estimation of concordance among gene treesCecile Ane
Department of Statistics, University of Wisconsin, USA

New Phytol 193:494503. 2012..We identify methods to reduce false positives and false negatives in the future. 11_11B can be viewed as a potential speciation gene, illustrating the value of transgenomics for studying the molecular basis of reproductive isolation...  Specificity in the symbiotic association between fungusgrowing ants and protective Pseudonocardia bacteriaMatias J Cafaro

Science 312:367; author reply 367. 2006..However, the conditions leading to their results are artificial. Standard MCMC convergence diagnostics would detect the problem in real data, and correction of the model misspecification would solve it...

Syst Biol 54:9615. 2005  Potential applications and pitfalls of Bayesian inference of phylogenyJohn P Huelsenbeck

Syst Biol 51:67388. 2002..The results of a Bayesian analysis should be examined with respect to the sensitivity of the results to the priors used and the reliability of the Markov chain Monte Carlo approximation of the probabilities of trees...
