A phylogeny is a tree graph representation of genealogical relationships between biological objects. It is of general interest to estimate the phylogeny of whole organisms (species trees) using bio-molecular sequences. When multiple sequences are available for each organism such as with whole genome data, individual phylogenies estimated by each molecule(More)
Genetic testing, which is now a routine part of clinical practice and disease management protocols, is often based on the assessment of small panels of variants or genes. On the other hand, continuous improvements in the speed and per-base costs of sequencing have now made whole exome sequencing (WES) and whole genome sequencing (WGS) viable strategies for(More)
Phylogenetics has a long history, with many contributions to the field actually predating Darwin. Genomics, in contrast, is barely a decade old. While these two fields may be disparate in their ages, each has much to contribute to the further development of the other. Phylogenetics provides a rich source of methodologies able to facilitate and enhance(More)
