Hi all,

My question is basically as the title says: can someone help me summarize the pros and cons of using a method like CVTree for phylogeny?

I have made a tree using CVTree from 14 Metarhizium species (filamentous fungi) of approximately 40 Mbp each. It was fast and easy, but I have not had much luck searching for review of this method.

I just want to know if this is a valid method, but any insights on pros and cons (especially cons) compared to using alignment-based methods will be highly appreciated.

Cheers, Thea
