Assessing confidence in root placement on phylogenies: an empirical study using non-reversible models for Mammals

Suha Naser-Khdour, Bui Quang Minh & Robert Lanfear
Using time-reversible Markov models is a very common practice in phylogenetic analysis, because although we expect many of their assumptions to be violated by empirical data, they provide high computational efficiency. However, these models lack the ability to infer the root placement of the estimated phylogeny. In order to compensate for the inability of these models to root the tree, many researchers use external information such as using outgroup taxa or additional assumptions such as...
