Abstract

Liu and Edwards argue against the use of weighted statistical binning within a species tree estimation pipeline. However, we show that their mathematical argument does not apply to weighted statistical binning. Furthermore, their simulation study does not follow the recommended statistical binning protocol and has data of unknown origin that bias the results against weighted statistical binning.
