Proper Distance Metrics for Phylogenetic Analysis Using Complete Genomes without Sequence Alignment


A shortcoming of most correlation distance methods based on the composition vectors without alignment developed for phylogenetic analysis using complete genomes is that the "distances" are not proper distance metrics in the strict mathematical sense. In this paper we propose two new correlation-related distance metrics to replace the old one in our… (More)
