Homo version 1.3

A program for analysing compositional heterogeneity across aligned sequence data. Most model-based molecular phylogenetic methods assume evolution under stationary, reversible, and globally homogeneous conditions, implying that it would be unwise to use these methods if the data evolved under more complex conditions. Homo allows users to test whet... more

This software was developed by Lars S Jermiin while employed at CSIRO and the University of Sydney. Currently, LSJ is at Research School of Biology, The Australian National University, Acton, ACT 2601, Australia ( Homo uses four functions (i.e., xGaussian_Distribution_Tail, xChi_Square_Distribution_Tail, Sum_Poisson_Terms, and Sum_Over_Odd_Terms) from two source code files (i.e., gaussian_distribution_tail.c, and chi-square_distribution_tail.c) written by Dr Richard L. Horn ( Dr Horn granted CSIRO and USYD a license to use these source code files without restrictions. The functions provided by Dr Horn replace some of the functions made available to the public from his Mathematics Source Library C & ASM (

About this Project

CLSD Strategic: Solving Biodiversity Cha

We generate knowledge on the mechanistic links and synergistic interactions between landscape change, species invasions and native species resilience in terrestrial ecosystems. Working on both natural and agricultural systems, we undertake research and develop theory to underpin more effective policy and management actions for conservation, invasio... more
