  1. 1. A Mechanism for Storing, Retrieving and Evaluating Statistical Properties of PhylogeneticTrees<br />Haleh Ashki, James C. Wilgenbusch, and Paul van der Mark.<br />Department of Scientific Computing, Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL<br />
  2. 2. Motivation<br />
  3. 3. Causes of conflicting results:<br /><ul><li> Computational methods: (MCMC, Bayesian)
  4. 4. Models: (substitution models, free parameters calculated during stochastic methods )
  5. 5. Biological problem : (Gene Tree vs Species Tree)</li></li></ul><li>Solution<br />Developing a tool to identify conflicting result.<br /><ul><li> Store Data: Database: Better data retention; Speed ; Interoperability ; Fault tolerance.
