Data from: Bursts of amino acid replacements in protein evolution

Anastasia V. Stolyarova, Georgii A. Bazykin, Tatiana V. Neretina & Alexey S. Kondrashov
Evolution can occur both gradually and through alternating episodes of stasis and rapid changes. However, the prevalence and magnitude of fluctuations of the rate of evolution remains obscure. Detecting a rapid burst of changes requires a detailed record of past evolution, so that events that occurred within a short time interval can be identified. Here, we use the phylogenies of the Baikal Lake amphipods and of Catarrhini, which contain very short internal edges facilitating this...
