Table 1 Execution times for running MP-EST as the number of genes increases.

From: A maximum pseudo-likelihood approach for estimating species trees under the coalescent model

  1. Gene trees were generated from a 20-taxon species tree and used as data to reconstruct species trees using MP-EST, STAR, and RT. The analyses were conducted on a linux compute machine (Dual Quad Core Xeon 2.66, 32GB RAM).
