Detecting recombination in evolving nucleotide sequences
BACKGROUND:Genetic recombination can produce heterogeneous phylogenetic histories within a set of homologous genes. These recombination events can be obscured by subsequent residue substitutions, which consequently complicate ...
Phylogenetic identification of lateral genetic transfer events
BACKGROUND:Lateral genetic transfer can lead to disagreements among phylogenetic trees comprising sequences from the same set of taxa. Where topological discordance is thought to have arisen through genetic transfer events, ...
