A reconstruction problem for a class of phylogenetic networks with lateral gene transfers | Algorithms for Molecular Biology | Full Text

Lateral, or Horizontal, Gene Transfers are a type of asymmetric evolutionary events where genetic material is transferred from one species to another. In this paper we consider LGT networks, a general model of phylogenetic networks with lateral gene transfers which consist, roughly, of a principal rooted tree with its leaves labelled on a set of taxa, and a set of extra secondary arcs between nodes in this tree representing lateral gene transfers. An LGT network gives rise in a natural way to a principal phylogenetic subtree and a set of secondary phylogenetic subtrees, which, roughly, represent, respectively, the main line of evolution of most genes and the secondary lines of evolution through lateral gene transfers.

Recombination Detection Program (RDP)

RDP applies a number of recombination detection and analysis algorithms. It runs under Windows 95/98/NT/XP/VISTA/7. You may download:

the most up to date (but still unstable) version of the program (RDP4 Beta 4.14 including VB runtimes, accessory apps, LDHat lookup tables and a large 3Seq p-value lookup table)the full program (smaller download) (RDP3 Alpha 44 including VB runtimes, accesory apps & LDHat lookup tables)the full program (bigger download) (RDP3 Alpha 44 including VB runtimes, accesory apps, LDHat lookup tables and a large 3Seq p-value lookup table)a user manual
