Hello everyone,

I bulit an exon phylogeny and an intron phylogeny of the same gene and want to compare if they are statistically consistent. The intron phylogeny has fewer taxa than the exon phylogeny because some taxa have lost the investigated intron. As observed by naked eyes, the two trees seemed consistent. But do you know if there are any ways or programs that can do such a statistical test?

Any comments are welcome!

Thanks for your reply.

I finally used KH test in PAUP and used same numbers of isolates when comparing exon tree with intron tree. I got the result that I want.
