# Solving the Persistent Phylogeny Problem in polynomial time

@article{Bonizzoni2016SolvingTP, title={Solving the Persistent Phylogeny Problem in polynomial time}, author={Paola Bonizzoni and Gianluca Della Vedova and Gabriella Trucco}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2016}, volume={abs/1611.01017} }

The notion of a Persistent Phylogeny generalizes the well-known Perfect phylogeny model that has been thoroughly investigated and is used to explain a wide range of evolutionary phenomena. More precisely, while the Perfect Phylogeny model allows each character to be acquired once in the entire evolutionary history while character losses are not allowed, the Persistent Phylogeny model allows each character to be both acquired and lost exactly once in the evolutionary history. The Persistent…
