  "abstract": "<p>This repository contains 142 tar.gz archive files, each containing nucleotide sequence data that have been simulated using <a href=\"\"><em>INDELible</em></a> for testing alignment-free phylogenetic inference methods. These datasets were generated by using the results (trees and model parameters) of 142 phylogenomic analyses of real-case data as model (available <a href=\"\">here</a>). Initial sequence length was 5 Mbs, and an indel rate of 0.01 was set with indel length drawn from [1, 50000] according to a Zipf distribution with parameter 1.5 (see <em>INDELible</em> <a href=\"\">manual</a>).</p>\n\n<p>Each archive contains the following files/directories:</p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li><code>GTR.params.trees.tsv &nbsp; </code> &nbsp; a tab-delimited file summarizing the real-case GTR+&Gamma; model parameters and the phylogenetic tree used to simulate the sequence dataset (gathered from <a href=\"\"></a>)</li>\n\t<li><code>tax.tsv &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; </code> &nbsp; a tab-delimited file containing the initial (col 1) and simplified (col 2) taxon names</li>\n\t<li><code>model.nwk &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; </code> &nbsp; a <a href=\"\">Newick</a>-formatted file containing the initial model tree (gathered from <code>GTR.params.trees.tsv</code>) with simplified leaf names (following <code>tax.tsv</code>)</li>\n\t<li><code>control.txt &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; </code> &nbsp; the <em>INDELible</em> input file used to simulate the evolution of a sequence along the tree in <code>model.nwk</code></li>\n\t<li><code>seq/ &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; </code> &nbsp; a directory containing the simulated sequences (one FASTA file per leaf in the tree in <code>model.nwk</code>)</li>\n</ul>\n\n<p>___</p>\n\n<p>Criscuolo A (2020) <em>On the transformation of MinHash-based uncorrected distances into proper evolutionary distances for phylogenetic inference</em>.
