Recovering genome rearrangements in the mammalian phylogeny.

The analysis of genome rearrangements provides a global view on the evolution of a set of related species. We present a new algorithm called EMRAE (efficient method to recover ancestral events) to reliably predict a wide-range of rearrangement events in the ancestry of a group of species. Using simulated data sets, we show that EMRAE achieves comparable… CONTINUE READING
