Comparison of software packages in Bayesian phylogenetics

Comparison of software packages in Bayesian phylogenetics                                       Senoir Supervisor: Liangliang Wang

Bayesian phylogenetics, which approximates a posterior distribution of phylogenetic trees using molecular sequences,  has become more and more popular with the development of  Monte Carlo methods.  This project involves investigating several popular software packages in Bayesian phylogenetics, comparing them with my proposed algorithms using simulation studies and real data analysis, and then summarizing the results. R programming and good writing are required. Being familiar with Java is a plus but not required.
