Dear members, I am new to this world of baseml. I am following the tutorial provided in http://www.fish-evol.com/mcmctreeExampleVert6/text1Eng.html. However, I am uanble to detect "Substitution rate is per time unit" in my mld file. I am writing baseml.ctl and my output file result below. Please help me how to calculate "Substitution rate " from the output file

Baseml.ctl

``````     seqfile = FBtr0005009.phy

kappa = 5  * initial or fixed kappa

fix_alpha = 0   * 0: estimate alpha; 1: fix alpha at value below
alpha = 0.5   * initial or fixed alpha, 0:infinity (constant rate)
Malpha = 0   * 1: different alpha's for genes, 0: one alpha

nparK = 0   * rate-class models. 1:rK, 2:rK&fK, 3:rK&MK(1/K), 4:rK&MK

nhomo = 0   * 0 & 1: homogeneous, 2: kappa for branches, 3: N1, 4: N2
getSE = 0   * 0: don't want them, 1: want S.E.s of estimates
RateAncestor = 0   * (0,1,2): rates (alpha>0) or ancestral states
Small_Diff = 7e-6

I found out the Solution :)

Can you please share the solution? I am having the same problem. There is no substitution rate in the mlb file.

The link posted is not working. Can you please check and correct?

Link is correct. I don't know why it is not working today. @Mertdogan, if you can share you mail id here, I will send you the complete folder via email.

Thank you for the offer but I used the older version and I got the sub. rate today. There might be a bug I don't know, another colleague tried his previous (worked) files with the newest version and he had the same problem. Thanks though.

Hi @mertdogan,

would it be possible for you to share the older version of PAML you're using with me? I'm running into the same problems and am not able to find an older version online.

Thanks!

hello @aloke205,

I just ran into the exact same problem. Would it be possible for you to share the folder you downloaded from fish-evol.com before the website went offline? I'm trying to learn how to use MCMCtree, but it isn't easy with half the tutorials being offline, and the other half broken :).

My email as andyoung at ucdavis.edu.

Thanks!! Andrew
