ReCombinatorics: The Algorithmics of Ancestral Recombination Graphs and Explicit Phylogenetic Networks (MIT Press)

In this booklet, Dan Gusfield examines combinatorial algorithms to build genealogical and distinct phylogenetic networks, relatively ancestral recombination graphs (ARGs). The algorithms produce networks (or information regarding networks) that function hypotheses in regards to the actual genealogical heritage of saw organic sequences and will be utilized to functional organic problems.

Phylogenetic bushes were the conventional ability to symbolize evolutionary heritage, yet there's a transforming into attention that networks instead of bushes are frequently wanted, such a lot particularly for contemporary human historical past. This has ended in the improvement of ARGs in inhabitants genetics and, extra extensively, to phylogenetic networks. ReCombinatorics bargains an in-depth, rigorous exam of present learn at the combinatorial, graph-theoretic constitution of ARGs and specific phylogenetic networks, and algorithms to reconstruct or deduce information regarding these networks.

ReCombinatorics, a groundbreaking contribution to the rising box of phylogenetic networks, connects and unifies subject matters in inhabitants genetics and phylogenetics that experience normally been mentioned individually and thought of to be unrelated. It covers the mandatory combinatorial and algorithmic history fabric; a few of the organic phenomena; the mathematical, inhabitants genetic, and phylogenetic versions that trap the basic parts of those phenomena; the combinatorial and algorithmic difficulties that derive from those versions; the theoretical effects which have been received; similar software program that has been constructed; and a few empirical checking out of the software program on simulated and actual organic data.
