In science:

That is it can be defined under the Jukes-Cantor model, the Kimura model, the GTR model etc.
A new distance between DNA sequences
To substantiate the claim that the new metric improves the existing metrics such as the Jukes-Cantor metric, F84 metric and Kimura-2-parameter metric, we conducted simulation experiments with simulated as well as real data. The details of these experiments are as follows.
A new distance between DNA sequences
Jukes-Cantor model. Figures 1-3 shows the comparison of the new metric with the corresponding existing metric in terms of nodal distance.
A new distance between DNA sequences
All the three type of experiments show that the new metric, when defined on the existing evolutionary models such as the Jukes-Cantor, Felsenstein 84, and Kimura-2parameter models, recovers better phylogenetic trees from the sequence data than the existing metrics.
A new distance between DNA sequences
Jukes, T.H, and C.R. Cantor. (1969). Evolution of protein molecules. Pp. 21-123 in H.N.
A new distance between DNA sequences
One can obtain the likelihood of a particular phylogenetic tree that relates the species of interest by superimposing a simple Markov model of DNA substitution due to Jukes and Cantor on that tree.
Auto-validating von Neumann Rejection Sampling from Small Phylogenetic Tree Spaces
The data for all four primates can be summarized by 61 distinct site patterns as parsed in . 10000 independent samples were drawn in 942 CPU seconds from the posterior distribution over Jukes-Cantor triplets, i.e. unrooted trees with three edges corresponding to the three primates emanating from their common ancestor.
Auto-validating von Neumann Rejection Sampling from Small Phylogenetic Tree Spaces
Any biological interpretation of this test must be done cautiously since the Jukes and Cantor model employed here forbids any transition:transversion bias that is reportedly relevant for this data .
Auto-validating von Neumann Rejection Sampling from Small Phylogenetic Tree Spaces
We were able to draw samples from Jukes-Cantor quartets by adding the homologous sequence of the Gibbon.
Auto-validating von Neumann Rejection Sampling from Small Phylogenetic Tree Spaces
Jukes-Cantor model in 375 CPU seconds and (3) over the clocked and rooted triplets under a more general mutational model due to Hasegawa, Kishino and Yano (HKY) in 1.2 CPU hours.
Auto-validating von Neumann Rejection Sampling from Small Phylogenetic Tree Spaces
Unlike the Jukes-Cantor model, all 15 distinct site patterns are minimally sufficient under the HKY model and this is reflected in its longer CPU time.

Using invariants for phylogenetic tree construction
Jukes-Cantor and Kimura models, and variants of the general Markov model, in which no constraints are placed on the transition matrices.
Using invariants for phylogenetic tree construction
For example, for a quartet tree (an unrooted binary tree with four leaves, see Figure 3) under the Jukes-Cantor model, pAAAA − pCCCC = 0, due to the symmetry built into the model.
