treedater: Fast Molecular Clock Dating of Phylogenetic Trees with Rate Variation

Functions for estimating times of common ancestry and molecular clock rates of evolution using a variety of evolutionary models, parametric and nonparametric bootstrap confidence intervals, methods for detecting outlier lineages, root-to-tip regression, and a statistical test for selecting molecular clock models. The methods are described in Volz, E.M. and S.D.W. Frost (2017) <doi:10.1093/ve/vex025>.
