Table 5 Accuracy of data sets generated along a 18 taxa tree (JC model).

From: Is plant mitochondrial RNA editing a source of phylogenetic incongruence? An answer from in silico and in vivo data sets

18 taxa tree - JC model
% editing 0 1 3 5 7 10
1,500 nucleotides       
Genomic 1 0.98* 0.95* 0.95* 0.95* 0.93*
cDNA 1 0.89 0.81 0.77 0.65 0.56
Control 1 0.97 0.95 0.97 0.96 0.91
  1. * indicates that the comparison between genomic and cDNA accuracy is significant (Pχ21< 0.05)
Accuracy of ML inferred trees from data sets of 1,500 bp generated along a 18 taxa tree and under a growing percentage of editing positions. Background sites evolved according to the JC model [17]. Results from multiple alignments lacking editing sites are also shown as control.
