Good morning,

I have used modelTest {phangorn} to test different nucleotide substitution models. There are 2 variants of Tamura-Nei model in it's output, which have differences in the number of degrees of freedom: TrNe has k+2 free parameters, TrN has k+5 free parameters.

In MEGAx I see only one variant - "Tamura-Nei". But TrNe and TrN have different AIC, BIC.

Could you please explain if "Tamura-Nei" in MEGAx corresponds to TrNe or Trn in modelTest {phangorn}?

Best regards, Poecile
