Features of phylogenetic alignment

  • Phylogenetic Alignment, aka Statistical Alignment
  • Explicit probabilistic representations for evolutionary models
  • Stochastic grammars, sampled sequence trajectories on phylogenetic trees

Reconstruction of indel history

In light of the interest in ancestral genome reconstruction, several authors have approached the problem of indel modeling from this slightly different direction. Typically these approaches require the input alignment to be specified and this leads the authors to a slightly different formalism, although the methods can still be reformulated within the framework of string transducers.
