Phylogenetic trees based on gene content


UNLABELLED Comparing gene content between species can be a useful approach for reconstructing phylogenetic trees. In this paper, we derive a maximum-likelihood estimation of evolutionary distance between species under a simple model of gene genesis and gene loss. Using simulated data on a biological tree with 107 taxa (and on a number of randomly generated… (More)
