With the growing number of phylogenetic studies that use length variable DNA sequences, incorporating information from length-mutational events into phylogenetic analysis is becoming increasingly important. A new method, modified complex indel coding is described that aims at maximizing the phylogenetic information retained from unambiguously aligned sequence regions or regions where the principal relative position of gaps to one another can be safely established. An algorithm is described that… CONTINUE READING
