Marginal likelihoods in phylogenetics: a review of methods and applications

A new preprint out of the lab reviews the theory, methods, and applications of marginal likelihoods in Bayesian phylogenetics. We couldn’t resist throwing in a few simulations to test the predicted behavior of one marginal likelihood estimator. Yes, a review paper with supplemental material.

Check out the slick interactive plots that Kerry Cobb developed to accompany the paper! I’m glad someone in the lab knows javascript better than me.
