|Title:||The evolution of base composition and phylogenetic inference|
|Abstract:||Base composition varies at all levels of the phylogenetic hierarchy and throughout the genome, and can be caused by active selection or passive mutation pressure. This variation can make reconstructing trees difficult. However, recent tree-based analyses have shed light on the forces responsible for the evolution of base composition, forces that might be very general. More explicit tree-based work is encouraged.|
