Reticulation events occur frequently in many types of species. Therefore, to develop accurate methods for reconstructing phylogenetic networks in order to describe evolutionary history in theâ€¦ (More)

The kinematic characteristic and energy of the conformations of a protein determine its motion and structure. Different conformations of the same protein have different amounts of energy. The proteinâ€¦ (More)

Consider two phylogenetic networks N and N â€² of size n. The tripartition-based distance finds the proportion of tripartitions which are not shared by N and N . This distance is proposed by Moret etâ€¦ (More)

The small parsimony problem is studied for reconstructing recombination networks from sequence data. The small parsimony problem is polynomial-time solvable for phylogenetic trees. However, theâ€¦ (More)

Classical sorting by reversals uses the unit-cost model, that is, each reversal consumes an equal cost. This model limits the biological meaning of sorting by reversal. Bender and his colleaguesâ€¦ (More)
