Detecting Highways of Horizontal Gene Transfer
Abstract. In a horizontal gene transfer (HGT) event a gene is transferred between two species that do not share an ancestor-descendant relationship. Typically, no more than a few g...

Integrating Sequence and Topology for Efficient and Accurate Detection of Horizontal Gene Transfer
Abstract. One phylogeny-based approach to horizontal gene transfer (HGT) detection entails comparing the topology of a gene tree to that of the species tree, and using their differ...

Using the nucleotide substitution rate matrix to detect horizontal gene transfer
Background: Horizontal gene transfer (HGT) has allowed bacteria to evolve many new capabilities. Because transferred genes perform many medically important functions, such as conf...

Identifiability Issues in Phylogeny-Based Detection of Horizontal Gene Transfer
Prokaryotic organisms share genetic material across species boundaries by means of a process known as horizontal gene transfer (HGT). Detecting this process bears great significanc...

RIATA-HGT: A Fast and Accurate Heuristic for Reconstructing Horizontal Gene Transfer
Horizontal gene transfer (HGT) plays a major role in microbial genome diversiļ¬cation, and is claimed to be rampant among various groups of genes in bacteria. Further, HGT is a ma...
