Topological metrizations of trees, and new quartet methods of tree inference.

Summary of "Topological metrizations of trees, and new quartet methods of tree inference."

Topological phylogenetic trees can be assigned edge weights in several natural ways, highlighting different aspects of the tree. Here the rooted triple and quartet metrizations are introduced, and applied to formulate novel methods of inferring large trees from rooted triple and quartet data. These methods lead to new statistically consistent procedures for inference of a species tree from gene trees under the multispecies coalescent model.

Towards an accurate and efficient heuristic for species/gene tree co-estimation.

Species and gene trees represent how species and individual loci within their genomes evolve from their most recent common ancestors. These trees are central to addressing several questions in biology...

Unsupervised Gene Network Inference with Decision Trees and Random Forests.

In this chapter, we introduce the reader to a popular family of machine learning algorithms, called decision trees. We then review several approaches based on decision trees that have been developed f...

Inference of ancient whole genome duplications and the evolution of the gene duplication and loss rate.

Gene tree - species tree reconciliation methods have been employed for studying ancient whole genome duplication (WGD) events across the eukaryotic tree of life. Most approaches have relied on using m...

Reconstruction of real and simulated phylogenies based on quartet plurality inference.

Deciphering the history of life on Earth has long been regarded as one of the most central tasks in biology. In past years, widespread discordance between the evolutionary histories of different group...

Aggregated Dendrograms for Visual Comparison Between Many Phylogenetic Trees.

We address the visual comparison of multiple phylogenetic trees that arises in evolutionary biology, specifically between one reference tree and a collection of dozens to hundreds of other trees. We a...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The only family of the order SCANDENTIA, variously included in the order Insectivora or in the order Primates, and often in the order Microscelidea, consisting of five genera. They are TUPAIA, Ananthana (Indian tree shrew), Dendrogale (small smooth-tailed tree shrew), Urogale (Mindanao tree shrew), and Ptilocercus (pen-tailed tree shrew). The tree shrews inhabit the forest areas of eastern Asia from India and southwestern China to Borneo and the Philippines.

The Christmas Mistletoe plant family of the order Santalales, subclass Rosidae, class Magnoliopsida. They are parasitic primarily on coniferous trees forming a drooping evergreen bush of leathery leaves on tree branches. The berries are sticky and toxic.

Essential oil extracted from Melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree). It is used as a topical antimicrobial due to the presence of terpineol.

Dried tree sap from the MASTIC TREE that is used in TRADITIONAL MEDICINE and chewed as gum.

A genus of trees in the VERBENACEAE (sometimes classified in the LAMIACEAE) family containing assorted flavonoids with possible analgesic and antineoplastic properties. The fruit of these trees is used in herbal preparations.
