Accuracy and Performance of Single versus Double Precision Arithmetics for Maximum Likelihood Phylogeny Reconstruction

Abstract

The multi-core revolution and the biological data flood that is generated by novel wet-lab techniques pose new technical challenges for large-scale inference of phylogenetic trees from molecular sequence data. We present the first assessment of accuracy and performance tradeoffs between single and double precision arithmetics and the first SSE3… (More)
