Tip branch lengths have greater error than internal branches. DF quartiles of tip branches are more extreme than those of internal branches and are affected more by read length, especially in the case of the small reference database. Each panel shows the mean values of the DF median, first quartile, and third quartile, averaged over 30 simulations for each parameter combination with 200 reads, for the rpoB family. Vertical error bars show a standard deviation above and below the mean.
