Supplementary Material

The supplementary material contains spreadsheets listing the genes for the empirical datasets used in the manuscript: FUNYBASE, TBR, DNA OrthoMaM, and AA OrthoMaM. Genes were ranked by the differential phylogenetic informativeness (DPI). DPI of each gene was evaluated quantitatively by integrating over the phylogenetic informativeness profile from the leaves to the root of the tree. Thus, DPI encompassed all branching points of the phylogenies, providing a summary of the relative informativeness of each gene to resolve all nodes in the phylogeny.
