  1. CL (conditioned logdet); CL non-phylo (conditioned logdet with non-phylogenetic mixture model); CL phylo (conditioned logdet with phylogenetic mixture model); SHOT (SHOT distances and BIONJ); RNA (16S rRNA and PHYML). Distances marked n/a were not calculated because the phylogenetic mixture model was only applied to the COG dataset.
