Data from: Are skyline plot-based demographic estimates overly dependent on smoothing prior assumptions?

Kris Varun Parag, Oliver Pybus & Chieh-Hsi Wu
In Bayesian phylogenetics, the coalescent process provides an informative framework for inferring changes in the effective size of a population from a phylogeny (or tree) of sequences sampled from that population. Popular coalescent inference approaches such as the Bayesian Skyline Plot, Skyride and Skygrid all model these population size changes with a discontinuous, piecewise-constant function but then apply a smoothing prior to ensure that their posterior population size estimates transition gradually with time. These prior...
