RIO: Analyzing proteomes by automated phylogenomics using resampled inference of orthologs
Background: When analyzing protein sequences using sequence similarity searches, orthologous sequences (that diverged by speciation) are more reliable predictors of a new protein&...

Discovering Frequent Agreement Subtrees from Phylogenetic Data
We study a new data mining problem concerning the discovery of frequent agreement subtrees (FASTs) from a set of phylogenetic trees. A phylogenetic tree, or phylogeny, is an unorde...

Structure and linear-time recognition of 4-leaf powers
A graph G is the k-leaf power of a tree T if its vertices are leaves of T such that two vertices are adjacent in G if and only if their distance in T is at most k. Then T is a k-le...
