TESS: Fast simulation of reconstructed phylogenetic trees under
time-dependent birth-death processes
TESS is a package for simulation of reconstructed
phylogenetic trees under global, time-dependent birth-death
processes. Speciation and extinction rates can be any function
of time and mass-extinction events at specific times can be
provided. Trees can be simulated either conditioned on the
number of species, the time of the process, or both.
Additionally, the likelihood equations are implemented for
convenience and can be used for Maximum Likelihood (ML)
estimation and Bayesian inference.
