Data from: Elevated substitution rates estimated from ancient DNA sequences

Simon Y. W. Ho, Sergios-Orestis Kolokotronis, Robin G. Allaby & Simon Y.W Ho
Ancient DNA sequences are able to offer valuable insights into molecular evolutionary processes, which are not directly accessible via modern DNA. They are particularly suitable for the estimation of substitution rates because their ages provide calibrating information in phylogenetic analyses, circumventing the difficult task of choosing independent calibration points. The substitution rates obtained from such datasets have typically been high, falling between the rates estimated from pedigrees and species phylogenies. Many of these estimates have...
