Modelling sequence evolution#
cogent3 possesses unique capabilities for molecular evolutionary analyses. Of particular significance are our non-stationary model classes and the associated measurement of genetic distance from these. That said, we also implement most of the conventional substitution models. See
cogent3.available_models() for a display of the built-in models.
You can use these models either through the general
model app, or some task specific apps. Both are described below.
