A versatile method, quartet puzzling, is introduced to reconstruct the topology (branching pattern) of a phylogenetic tree based on DNA or amino acid sequence data. This method applies maximum-likelihood tree reconstruction to all possible quartets that can be formed from n sequences. The quartet trees serve as starting points to reconstruct a set of optimal n-taxon trees. The majority rule consensus of these trees defines the quartet puzzling tree and shows groupings that are well supported… CONTINUE READING
