Unformatted text preview: tree. 2. (Optional) Allow the user to choose another model of DNA evolution, such as the Felsenstein 1981 model, and then calculate the likelihood of the tree given the model chosen by the user. Note that the user will also have to specify the model parameters, such as the stationary state frequencies. You may consult Felsenstein’s book for the exact formulas of the transition probabilities, or you can use standard linear algebra algorithms to exponentiate the instantaneous rate matrix....
