Distance Based Methods in Phylogentic Tree Construction

  title={Distance Based Methods in Phylogentic Tree Construction},
  author={Chuang Peng},
One of the most fundamental aspects of bioinformatics in understanding sequence evolution and relationships is molecular phylogenetics, in which the evolutionary histories of living organisms are represented by finite directed (weighted) graphs, in particular, directed (weighted) trees. There are basically two types of phylogenetic methods, distance based methods and character based methods. Distance based methods include two clutering based algorithms, UPGMA, NJ, and two optimality based… CONTINUE READING
