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...

SIGI: score-based identification of genomic islands
Background: Genomic islands can be observed in many microbial genomes. These stretches of DNA have a conspicuous composition with regard to sequence or encoded functions. Genomic ...

An approach to large scale identification of non-obvious structural similarities between proteins
Background: A new sequence independent bioinformatics approach allowing genome-wide search for proteins with similar three dimensional structures has been developed. By utilizing ...

Confounding Factors in HGT Detection: Statistical Error, Coalescent Effects, and Multiple Solutions
Prokaryotic organisms share genetic material across species boundaries by means of a process known as horizontal gene transfer (HGT). This process has great significance for unde...

A pattern recognition-based approach for phylogenetic network construction with constrained recombination
The tree representation of evolutionary relationship oversimplifies the view of the process of evolution as it cannot take into account the events such as horizontal gene transfer...

P-value based visualization of codon usage data
Two important and not yet solved problems in bacterial genome research are the identification of horizontally transferred genes and the prediction of gene expression levels. Both ...

Phylogenetic Networks, Trees, and Clusters
Phylogenetic networks model evolutionary histories in the presence of non-treelike events such as hybrid speciation and horizontal gene transfer. In spite of their widely acknowled...

A Probabilistic Model for Gene Content Evolution with Duplication, Loss, and Horizontal Transfer
We introduce a Markov model for the evolution of a gene family along a phylogeny. The model includes parameters for the rates of horizontal gene transfer, gene duplication, and gen...
