  1. * indicates that the comparison between genomic and cDNA accuracy is significant (Pχ21 < 0.05)
Accuracy of ML inferred trees from data sets generated along a 12 taxa tree and under a growing percentage of editing positions. Background sites evolved according to JC model [17]. Results from multiple alignments without editing sites are also shown as control.
