Bayesian estimates of divergence times inferred from the concatenated dataset of seven Y chromosomal amplicons
Node Divergence Mean 95% HPD
t1* Macaca-apes 29.51 25.21-33.73
t2 gibbons-human/chimpanzee 16.88 13.74-20.05
t3* human-chimpanzee 5.40 4.45-6.30
t4 gibbons 5.21 4.01-6.44
t5 Nomascus- Symphalangus 4.87 3.76-6.06
t6 Hylobates 2.56 1.90-3.27
t7 2 groups of Hylobates spp. 2.04 1.49-2.61
t8 H. lar +  H. pileatus 1.55 1.06-2.08
t9 H. agilis/ H. moloch/ H. klossii 1.45 0.99-1.91
t10 Nomascus 0.84 0.50-1.25
t11 N. concolor- N. leucogenys 0.60 0.28-0.93

The estimated divergence dates are in million years before present. MRCA denotes the most recent common ancestor. HPD, highest posterior density
