Data from: Experimental design in phylogenetics: testing predictions from expected information

Diego San Mauro, David J. Gower, James A. Cotton, Rafael Zardoya, Mark Wilkinson & Tim Massingham
Taxon and character sampling is central to phylogenetic experimental design yet we lack general rules. Goldman introduced a method to construct efficient sampling designs in phylogenetics, based on the calculation of expected Fisher information given a probabilistic model of sequence evolution. The considerable potential of this approach remains largely unexplored. In an earlier study, we applied Goldman’s method to a problem in the phylogenetics of caecilian amphibians and made an a priori evaluation and testable...
