We are developing software (MrBayes, RevBayes and TreePPL) for probabilistic inference in phylogeny and evolution, and we are using this software for empirical phylogenomic analyses. The analyses are often used to demonstrate new techniques or tackle challenging empirical analyses with new algorithms or under new evolutionary models. We will also be bench-marking our software against other computational phylogenetics and probabilistic programming software, including PhyloBayes, BayesCode and Birch.
