Maximum Agreement Subtree in a Set of Evolutionary Trees: Metrics and Efficient Algorithms

  title={Maximum Agreement Subtree in a Set of Evolutionary Trees: Metrics and Efficient Algorithms},
  author={Amihood Amir and Dmitry Keselman},
  journal={SIAM J. Comput.},
The maximum agreement subtree approach is one method of reconciling different evolutionary trees for the same set of species. An agreement subtree enables choosing a subset of the species for whom the restricted subtree is equivalent (under a suitable definition) in all given evolutionary trees. Recently, dynamic programming ideas were used to provide polynomial time algorithms for finding a maximum homeomorphic agreement subtree of two trees. Generalizing these methods to sets of more than two… CONTINUE READING
