Primates, Lice and Bacteria: Speciation and Genome Evolution in the Symbionts of Hominid Lice
Abstract Insects with restricted diets rely on symbiotic bacteria to provide essential metabolites missing in their diet. The blood-sucking lice are obligate, host-specific parasites of mammals andExpand

FastRFS: fast and accurate Robinson-Foulds Supertrees using constrained exact optimization
Motivation: The estimation of phylogenetic trees is a major part of many biological dataset analyses, but maximum likelihood approaches are NP‐hard and Bayesian MCMC methods do not scale well to evenExpand

OCTAL: Optimal Completion of gene trees in polynomial time
BackgroundFor a combination of reasons (including data generation protocols, approaches to taxon and gene sampling, and gene birth and loss), estimated gene trees are often incomplete, meaning thatExpand
