Efficient Bayesian Inference of General Gaussian Models on Large Phylogenetic Trees

29 Sep 2020 Bastide Paul Ho Lam Si Tung Baele Guy Lemey Philippe Suchard Marc A

Phylogenetic comparative methods correct for shared evolutionary history among a set of non-independent organisms by modeling sample traits as arising from a diffusion process along on the branches of a possibly unknown history. To incorporate such uncertainty, we present a scalable Bayesian inference framework under a general Gaussian trait evolution model that exploits Hamiltonian Monte Carlo (HMC)... (read more)
