Efficient Enumeration of Phylogenetically Informative Substrings
We study the problem of enumerating substrings that are common amongst genomes that share evolutionary descent. For example, one might want to enumerate all identical (therefore conserved) substrings that are shared between all mammals and not found in nonmammals. Such collection of substrings may be used to identify conserved subsequences or to construct sets of identifying substrings for branches of a phylogenetic tree. For two disjoint sets of genomes on a phylogenetic tree, a substring is called a discriminating substring or a tag if it is found in all of the genomes of one set and none of the genomes of the other set. Given a phylogeny for a set of m species, each with a genome of length at most n, we develop a suffix-tree based algorithm to find all tags in O(nm log2 m) time. We also develop a sublinear space algorithm (at the expense of running time) that is more suited for very large data sets. We next consider a stochastic model of evolution to understand how tags arise. We sh...
