  1. The short reads were simulated from the mtDNA sequences using four error models 454, Exact, Empirical, and Sanger of the tool MetaSim at 5 × sampling depth. The two smallest tree symmetric differences for each error model are highlighted in boldface. Similar results for 1 ×, 10 ×, and 30 × sampling depths can be found in Additional file 1: Table S2.
