QDC(
  genetreedata,
  taxanames = NULL,
  method = fastme.bal,
  omit = FALSE,
  metric = FALSE
)

Arguments

genetreedata

gene tree data that may be supplied in any of 3 forms:

  1. a character string giving the name of a file containing gene trees in Newick,

  2. a multiPhylo object containing gene trees, or

  3. a resolved quartet table, such as produced by quartetTableResolved

taxanames

if genetreedata is a file or a multiPhylo object, a vector of a subset of the taxa names on the gene trees to be analyzed, if NULL all taxa on the first gene tree are used; if genetreedata is a quartet table, this argument is ignored and all taxa in the table are used

method

a distance-based tree building function, such as fastme.bal or nj

omit

TRUE ignores unresolved quartets; FALSE treats them as 1/3 of each resolution; ignored if genetreedata is supplied as a quartet table

metric

if FALSE return topological tree; if TRUE return metric tree with internal edge lengths estimated by estimateEdgeLengths with lambda=0, and terminal branches of length 1

Details

This function is a wrapper which performs the steps of reading in a collection of gene trees, tallying quartets, computing the quartet distance between taxa, building a tree which consistently estimates the unrooted species tree topology under the MSC, and then possibly estimating edge lengths using the "simpleML" method.

Value

an unrooted tree of type phylo
