We study the sequence lengths required by neighbor-joining, greedy parsimony, and a phylogenetic reconstruction method (DCMNJ+MP) based on disk-covering and the maximum parsimony criterion. We use extensive simulations based on random birth-death trees, with controlled deviations from ultrametricity, to collect data on the scaling of sequence-length requirements for each of the three methods as a function of the number of taxa, the rate of evolution on the tree, and the deviation fromdoi:10.1007/3-540-45784-4_26 fatcat:aemoqpgdgjflvet77j7pyyjvnu
