A Distance Measure for Building Phylogenetic Trees: A First Approach

Abstract

We propose a distance measure for building phylogenetic trees in comparative genomics. The measure is based on the Bidirectional Best Hit (BBH) concept. The idea behind the measure is, insofar as that two organisms share more Bidirectional Best Hits (BBHs) they are more similar. Although, in general, the sizes of the genomes are different; a similarity… (More)
