Table 1 Results of the analysis of simulated data sets

From: Novel non-parametric models to estimate evolutionary rates and divergence times from heterochronous sequence data

Clock Two local clocks Three discrete rate classes
  Root age Number of rates Root age Number of rates
Strict 29 1 33 1
Local 50 2 (4), 3 (34), 4 (10), 5 (2) 49 2 (16), 3 (11), 4 (18), 5 (5)
Discrete 49 2 (35), 3 (15) 46 2 (49), 3 (1)
  1. The table shows the number of replicates (out of 50) for which the true root age lies within the 95% confidence interval estimated by Physher for data sets simulated under two different clock models. The ‘number of rates’ column shows the distribution of the estimated number of rates with their proportion between brackets.
