Posterior distributions of the coefficient of variation of branch rates and the population growth rate for four empirical data sets: Enterovirus A71 (EV-A71), West Nile Virus (WNV), Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus (RHDV), and Shigella sonnei. Estimates were made using the uncorrelated lognormal clock (UCLN) and the exponential-growth coalescent (EGC). A coefficient of variation of branch rates that approaches zero indicates that evolution has been clock-like. A growth rate including zero indicates that population size has been constant
