### Global molecular clock: a constant rate of substitution over time (Zuckerkandl and Pauling, 1962) Estimates of species divergence dates and fossil calibration.

Relaxed molecular clocks and dating This is because we wish to estimate the mean substitution rate (and in doing so the divergence times). Ignore the warning that appears. The second thing we will do is to change the molecular clock model to Relaxed Clock: Uncorrelated Log-normal so as to account for lineage-speciﬁc rate heterogeneity. F or the divergence between Neanderthals and modern humans, the slower rate provides an estimate between 765,000 and 550,000 years ago. The faster rate, however, would suggest half that age, or 380,000–275,000 years ago: a big difference. Strict and relaxed clock models are used in Bayesian estimation of divergence times. We examined whether: i) strict clock models are generally more appropriate in shallow phylogenies where rate variation is expected to be low, ii) the likelihood ratio test of the clock (LRT) reliably informs which model is appropriate for dating divergence times. D ivergence dating. Relaxed clock analyses were performed using either uniform or fossilized birth–death (FBD) tree priors. To determine an appropriate clock rate prior, we ran a strict clock analysis with a fixed topology determined by the results of initial nonclock phylogenetic analyses. The confounding nature of evolutionary rates and time in divergence dating analyses requires that the molecular clock be calibrated independently using information from the evolutionary timescale. Here we show that this evidence can come from multiple sources, ranging from mutation rates measured in pedigree and laboratory lines, to fossil Using molecular clocks to estimate divergence dates depends on other methods of dating. In order to calculate the rate at which a stretch of DNA changes, biologists must use dates estimated from other relative and absolute dating techniques. *This number is for changes that affect the structure of the protein •
