Utility functions to work with MCMCtree

Marginal likelihood calculation

The package can be used to prepare control files for marginal likelihood calculation with MCMCtree to, for example, select the relaxed-clock model. Marginal likelihood calculation can be carried out by the thermodynamic integration or stepping-stones methods. A tutorial is available here.

Working with quantitative morphological characters

The package is also useful for working with quantitative morphological characters. It can:
