RAxML and FastTree: Comparing Two Methods for Large-Scale Maximum Likelihood Phylogeny Estimation

Figure 2

Runtimes (h) of ML methods on the ClustalW and PartTree alignments of the simulated 1000-taxon datasets.

Runtimes of ML methods on other alignments are similar to runtimes on the ClustalW alignment (data not shown). The 1000-taxon model conditions are arranged along each x-axis from left to right in order of increasing difficulty. Standard error bars are shown. for each reported value.
