I would like to know how to estimate the divergence time on the basis of synonymous substituion(Ks) value. As fas as I know for this I have followed the muse clock (=Ks/2D, where Ks : Synonymous substituion and D is  synonamous mutation rate/year), here my question is how to know the value of D.  Is this vary from species to species or its fixed.
