  1. We relate the comparison of gene orders to an alignment problem. Our evolutionary model accounts for both rearrangement and content-modifying events. We present a heuristic based on dynamic programming for the...

  3. The perfect phylogeny is an often used model in phylogenetics since it provides an efficient basic procedure for representing the evolution of genomic binary characters in several frameworks, such as for examp...

  4. Species tree estimation can be challenging in the presence of gene tree conflict due to incomplete lineage sorting (ILS), which can occur when the time between speciation events is short relative to the popula...

  6. Clonal expansion is a process in which a single organism reproduces asexually, giving rise to a diversifying population. It is pervasive in nature, from within-host pathogen evolution to emergent infectious di...
