Table 1 Tree Types, Bayesian Posterior Probability of the Branch of Lungfish-Coelacanth (tree III) or Lungfish-Tetrapods (Tree I) for 7, 6, 5 and 4-Taxon Sets, and Taxon Jackknife Supports with the Bayesian Method under the Coalescence Model

From: 43 genes support the lungfish-coelacanth grouping related to the closest living relative of tetrapods with the Bayesian method under the coalescence model
