Creates the XML text for the distribution tag with the likelihood ID, of a BEAST2 parameter file, in an unindented form




a Bayesian phylogenetic inference model. An inference model is the complete model setup in which a site model, clock model, tree prior and more are specified. Use create_inference_model to create an inference model. Use check_inference_model to check if an inference model is valid. Use rename_inference_model_filenames to rename the files in an inference model.


The distribution tag (with ID equals likelihood) has these elements:

  <distribution id="likelihood"[...]>
     <distribution id="treeLikelihood"[...]>

The distribution section with ID treeLikelihood is created by create_tree_likelihood_distr_xml.

Zooming out:

      <distribution id="posterior"[...]>
        <distribution id="likelihood"[...]>
