- ‘The expectations are actually obtained using the posterior probabilities rather than the prior probabilities.’
- ‘If the null hypothesis is rejected, the program calculates a posterior probability for functional divergence for each position in the alignment.’

- ‘Within the Bayesian framework, the posterior probability is obtained from the likelihood function and the prior probability.’
