IB 200A “Principles of Phylogenetics” Spring 2008 Concatenating Data Sets and Running Analyses Concatenating Molecular Data Sets Mesquite can concatenate molecular data sets. It is also possible to concatenate molecular and morphological data matrices (aka, “total evidence” matrices) by hand. Open up the two molecular matrices that you want to concatenate. Get the taxa in the two matrices to be identical. This means that you have to change the names so that they are the same. If the data sets do not have exactly the same taxa add taxa without any characters to the data sets to make them identical. The taxa do not have to be in the same order. 1. Save both matrices and close them both. 2. Open up one of them again. 3. While in the data editor window, go to File>Link File… 4. Select the other matrix. It will now open. 5. In the first matrix data editor window go to Matrix>Utilities>Concatenate Other Matrix. 6.
