  • The authors show that accurate bootstrap confidence limits on inferred evolutionary relationships of species can be estimated by bootstrapping a collection of little samples of very long sequence alignments. Little bootstraps take a fraction of computer time and memory compared to the standard bootstrap, enabling big data analytics on personal computers.
