Allard and Carpenter mitochondrial DNA data
These files were used by Allard and Carpenter (1996) in their discussion of weighting and congruence of mitochondrial genes. Their data file contained several mistakes (the blue whale, grey seal, and horse ATPASE8 sequences are incorrect). Page and Charleston (in press) discuss the implications of these errors for Allard and Carpenter's conclusions.
