Figure 5: Phylogenetic accuracy. Symmetric-difference tree distance as a function of the gene ranking based on phylogenetic informativeness for (a) OrthoMaM amino acid (dark green circles), OrthoMaM DNA (light green circles), FUNYBASE (blue squares), and TBR (black crosses) data sets and (b) simulated amino acid (blue) and DNA (red) data. The symmetric difference was calculated comparing each gene tree estimated by ML to the well-established tree as obtained from the concatenated amino acid sequences. The corresponding Pearson’s correlation coefficient ( ) and value for each data set are indicated. For the simulated data, the mean and its standard error were plotted using the replicates.
