I'm interested in "succint" comparison/critique of the various
algorithms/programs available for phylogenetic-type sequence analyses.
I understand this may be like asking for a "succint" critique of
Mozart, but still...
In particular - is there a way to assess the "error" or confidence
level in a tree? I understand there are some outputs that indicate
the percentage of bootstrap trees that give the final tree shape.
Also- how does one interpret the vertical and horizontal distances
in rooted dendograms as, for example, output from Treeview?
