Modified Mincut Supertrees

  title={Modified Mincut Supertrees},
  author={Roderic D. M. Page},
A polynomial time supertree algorithm could play a key role in a divide-and-conquer strategy for assembling the tree of life. To date only a single such method capable of accommodate conflicting input trees has been proposed, the MinCutSupertree algorithm of Semple and Steel. This paper describes this algorithm and its implementation, then illustrates some weaknesses of the method. A modification to the algorithm that avoids some of these problems is proposed. The paper concludes by discussing… CONTINUE READING
