Accuracy Guarantees for Phylogeny Reconstruction Algorithms Based on Balanced Minimum Evolution. (2010)
Presentation / Conference Contribution

Distance based phylogenetic methods attempt to reconstruct an accurate phylogenetic tree relating a given set of taxa from an estimated matrix of pair-wise distances between taxa. This paper examines two distance based algorithms (GreedyBME and FastM... Read More about Accuracy Guarantees for Phylogeny Reconstruction Algorithms Based on Balanced Minimum Evolution..

A Network Approach to Study Karyotypic Evolution: The Chromosomal Races of the Common Shrew (Sorex araneus) and House Mouse (Mus musculus) as Model Systems (2010)
Journal Article

The development of methods to reconstruct phylogenies from karyotypic data has lagged behind what has been achieved with molecular and morphological characters. This hampers our understanding of the role of chromosomal rearrangements in speciation, w...

Consistency of Topological Moves Based on the Balanced Minimum Evolution Principle of Phylogenetic Inference (2009)
Journal Article

Many phylogenetic algorithms search the space of possible trees using topological rearrangements and some optimality criterion. FastME is such an approach that uses the balanced minimum evolution (BME) principle, which computer studies have demonstra...
