More datasets for validating network algorithms

Four more datasets have been added to the Datasets blog page. These are:
  • 1 stemmatology study where the manuscript history is known from experimentation
  • 2 stemmatology studies where the manuscript history is known from experimentation, and where there is reticulation caused by contamination
  • 1 plant study where recombination is known.

These are the first three studies to be added from the social sciences, all of them from experimental manipulation of text copying.

Unfortunately, it is unlikely that suitable datasets will be found from other parts of the social sciences, such as linguistics; but please tell us if you know of any relevant studies, where the phylogenetic history is known or inferred independently of the dataset itself.
