HV is a post-doctoral fellow of the Research Foundation - Flanders. Analyses were carried out on the KERMIT cluster ( inference of red algal tree) and the central HPC facility at Ghent University ( simulation experiments). We thank Wim Gillis for IT support and all who have deposited red algal sequences in Genbank over the years. Sequence data generated by GWS and LLG were funded by the Canadian Barcode of Life Network from Genome Canada through the Ontario Genomics Institute, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, and other sponsors listed at http://www.BOLNET.ca, the Canada Research Chair Program, Canada Foundation for Innovation, and New Brunswick Innovation Fund. We thank Chuck Amsler and the NSF Office of Polar Programs (OPP-9814538) for acquiring Gainia.
