Data from: Pruning rogue taxa improves phylogenetic accuracy: an efficient algorithm and webservice

Andre J. Aberer, Denis Krompass & Alexandros Stamatakis
The presence of rogue taxa (rogues) in a set of trees can frequently have a negative impact on the results of a bootstrap analysis (e.g., the overall support in consensus trees). We introduce an efficient graph-based algorithm for rogue taxon identification as well as an interactive web-service implementing this algorithm. Compared to our previous method, the new algorithm is up to four orders of magnitude faster, while returning qualitatively identical results. Because of this significant...
