  1. * indicates that the comparison between genomic and cDNA accuracy is significant (Pχ21< 0.05)
Accuracy of ML inferred trees from data sets of 1,000 bp generated along a 24 taxa tree and under a growing percentage of editing positions. Background sites evolved according both JC and HKY models [17, 18]. Results from multiple alignments without editing sites are also shown as control.
